musicals - you'll love MTH!

theater company whose concert-style productions bring alive
the American Musical like never before (read below). The
quality of the performers are top-rate, and the sound is outstanding.
have comfortable, oversized, movie theater-style seats where
you can enjoy a show up-close and from no further than 7 rows
from the stage. Audiences
love it! And
we have a full bar and FREE parking. We
are confident that you will enjoy your visit...so much that
you will happily refer MTH to your friends!
We are very confident you will love what we do. IF you
are hesitant, just try us just ONE time
and if you are not completely satisfied, we'll give you your
Power of Concert-Style
It's very similar to what you
might have seen on PBS these past few years (i.e. Les Miserables,
Carousel, Company, South Pacific, Candide). You get the
complete show, but the orchestra is on stage and the actors
stand at studio microphones and perform facing out towards YOU
in the audience (just like a concert!). It makes for a
powerful experience, and you will understand and enjoy the story
& music like never before!
