“Once again the inimitable Bruce Kimmel has brought together a group of superior singers to present an informative, delightful, musically satisfying evening of song.” — Robert Machray, Stage Happenings

“If you have never experienced a Kritzerland show, you do not know what you are missing. Forever humorous Bruce Kimmel presents a dazzling array of talent singing some very precious material. And there are always surprises.”
— Don Grigware, Broadway World

Our show for May is kind of a put-together of Bruce Kimmel’s Broadway Bound CD (New Writers for the Musical Theatre) mixed with some songs by composers and lyricists who, while having written shows that made it to Broadway, never quite got in the front rank of musical theatre writers. These unsung songwriters have written some pretty terrific stuff, so we’re happy to resurrect some of their wonderful songs. It’s an evening of songs you probably haven’t heard before, along with a couple of songs that actually became hits but were from unsuccessful shows. It’s the kind of show Kritzerland loves to do, so come on down and hear some absolutely brilliant material delivered by a stellar cast.
