"Just returned home to Overland Park from attending opening night of "Sunday in the Park with George". Bravo! I have not been to your theater nor was familiar with Musical Theater Heritage. The quality of your vocalists is outstanding. And so is the quality of your strings. I love how you have it "staged". My friends and I greatly appreciated your introduction of the show and the background you provided. I look forward to attending more shows at your theater. Thanks again so much for this special opportunity!

"The fact that the show can be stripped down and presented as it is without losing anything shows the power of the material. The opening number sent chills up my spine and kept me on the edge of my seat for the rest of the evening."

A Night on the Town Radio SeriesOur Radio Show
MTH's humble beginnings began with the "A Night on the Town" Radio Series", a weekly radio show about the history of the American Musical, written and hosted by George Harter. In 1998 George created Musical Theater Heritage as a 501c3 so as to syndicate the program on a national level and to entertain and enlighten new generations with the legacy of this American art form known as Musical Comedy.

Today his radio show is sponsored by the historic Algonquin Hotel in New York City, and is heard in Dallas, Atlanta, South Florida and on New York Public Radio. Locally, "A Night on the Town" is heard on KPR, at 91.5 FM, Saturday nights at 9pm. The program is also available online on the "A Night on the Town" website.

New York, New York!
Several times a year, MTH takes theater fans to New York for organized trips that include Broadway shows, fine dining, four nights at the Algonquin Hotel and fascinating insights into the history of Broadway and the American Musical.  Please join us!  Here's a list of our upcoming trips.
