If you follow Broadway shows and the New York city scene you may remember the odd title ” Title of Show” and maybe you were lucky enough to witness it.
It was a show about creating a Broadway show, ” Life imitating Art” and despite it’s flaws ( Most regretably, in my opinion the music was not terribly inspiring) however…. It was really captivating and enjoyable in it’s own unique way.
Playbill.com announced that ” Title of Show” is back and thank goodness they have changed the title and reworked it with more songs. I am hoping the songs will be as good as the script. ( The script won several awards including best original score.
Here’s the scoop from Andew Gans.
