Center REPertory Theatre 2007-2008 Season: The Musical of Musicals: The Musical! 

When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m., Sundays, 2:30 p.m. and Wednesdays, 7:30 p.m. Continues through June 14 2008
Price: $29-$39

In Eric Rockwell and Joanne Bogart's The Musical of Musicals: The Musical!, variants of the same story are told in the style of five different musical-theater songwriting teams. The same four actors play alternate versions of the same roles throughout Center REP's Bay Area premiere directed and choreographed by Mindy Cooper: Dani Marcus as cash-strapped ingénue June, Mark Farrell as leering landlord Jitter, Quinn Van Antwerp as strapping hero Willy, and Milissa Carey as maternal advisor Abby. The Rodgers and Hammerstein homage is mostly a delightfully corny parody of Oklahoma!with hints of Carousel, the Sondheim section mixes a whole lot of Sweeney Todd with a dash of Company, the Jerry Herman chapter is in Mamemode, the Kander and Ebb one takes two parts Cabaret to one part Chicago, and best of all is the hilarious Andrew Lloyd Webber parody pairing egomaniacal Junita with the Phantom Jitter. Through June 21 at LesherCenter for the Arts (1601 Civic Dr., Walnut Creek). LesherArtsCenter.org or 925-943-7469
