Musicals Tonight! is now in its
18th season. Honored with an OBIE Award, Musicals Tonight! is a not-for-profit theatre company in New York City primarily dedicated to the revival of “neglected” musicals in a manner affordable to most audience members. Since our inception in 1997, we have revived over 80 musicals in staged concert form (charging only $25 per ticket and operating under an Actor's Equity Association Showcase Code).

The list of creators of the shows we present is a veritable Who's Who of American Musical Theatre - legendaries such as Cole Porter, George & Ira Gershwin, and Rodgers & Hart. Learn more about our many past performances by clicking on any of the show titles below and to the right.

Our 2015-2016 Season includes five entertaining musical revivals: the Gershwins' Oh, Kay! (1926) featuring “Someone to Watch Over Me”; Out of This World (1950) with music and lyrics by Cole Porter; Rodgers and Hart's Babes in Arms (1937) including “My Funny Valentine” and “The Lady is a Tramp”; Do Re Mi (1960, with music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Betty Comden & Adolph Green); and Wonderful Town (1953) based on a collection of New Yorker short stories with music by Leonard Bernstein.

Musicals Tonight! is the only theatre company to offer four matinees! Matinees are on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 PM. Evening shows Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday start at 7:30.

If you'd like to know more about Producer/Artistic Director Mel Miller and the history of Musicals Tonight!, you'll enjoy this article from Playbill On-Line.

Because these musicals are produced as staged concerts, we can focus on the work and the performers and place less attention on costume and scenic details.

We have showcased the talents of over 1000 very talented - and often under-employed - actors. But please note! Alums of ours are on Broadway in Mamma Mia, Godspell, War Horse, Anything Goes, and many more.

You will also enjoy another Musicals Tonight! showcasing effort - At This Performance! - our 13th season with this hit series designed to allow talented Broadway standbys and understudies to sing their shows’ current musical hits. Audiences can hear today’s theatre songs - for $26.25 instead of $101.25 - and talented performers who rarely sing before audiences and/or agents, can do so. There are FIVE shows in the 2015-2016 season, all starting at 7:00 PM - check for dates. Become a Season Subscriber and receive a $5 discount on each concert!
