About the Show

Theater for the New City presents this new musical, a silly, satirical lampoon of Broadway and all things theater, based on the obscure '90s tuner 'Platinum Taps.'

Indulgent, Banal, Endless, amatuerish,

See it if you want to see a community theater level production of a musical ripoff of The Producers & 42nd Street performed by low level songs & dance

Don't see it if you enjoy professional musicals with a great story, song and dance performed by quality performers.

Disappointing, Dizzying, Confusing, Cliched, Excruciating

See it if you want to waste 2 1/2 hour of your life on this Grand Theft Disaster. The only redeeming quality of the show was the tap dance routine.

Don't see it if you value your time. Read more

Banal, Confusing, Disappointing, Insipid, Excruciating

See it if You have nothing else to do and want to waste three hours of your life. I left at intermission because it was painful.

Don't see it if You enjoy a well written piece of art. This was a train wreck on many levels

Theater Pizzazz
March 28th, 2017

"'Grand Theft Musical' is meant to be a paean to Broadway in the form of a spoof...There are many pointed and witty lines, some clever skits, several outstanding performances, but in the end the whole doesn’t equal the sum of its parts. The piece is much too long and needs more than tightening, it requires restructuring...It doesn’t just borrow from great shows audiences love, it steals whole songs."

Theater In The Now
March 28th, 2017

“This lovely, full-length musical has something for everyone. Fans of the American songbook will enjoy all the inside jokes...Musical director Peterson keeps the show’s 24 musical numbers rolling along, and a team of choreographers provide classy tap-dancing for Gino and many swoonable moments for the ensemble. A lot of love for the genre and for the late Sickinger went into this production...You will probably want to see what all the commotion is about.”
