Based on the popular Jim Davis comic strip, Garfield has a book by Michael J. Bobbitt and Jim Davis, with music and lyrics by John L. Cornelius II. In the stage production, “a chubby and sarcastic tabby cat fantasizes about having the most amazing birthday in the history of birthdays. He deserves it for being the best cat ever! But, it seems that all his friends - Arlene, Odie, Jon and even his nemesis, Nermal, seem to have forgotten. Feeling rejected, Garfield ventures out to find adventure, but quickly learns that ‘home is where the heart... and the food is.’”
Mad Libs Live! is based on the popular word game. It features music by Jeff Thomson, with book and lyrics by Robin Rothstein.
Here’s how it’s billed: “The story begins at the finals of Teen Superstars, the live TV show that will determine the most popular singing group at Blankville Central High. Virtuosa, Gogo, Geyser, and Merrily seem to have nothing in common - until just before airtime, when they realize that their songs are missing words! In the spirit of the ‘World’s Greatest Word Game,’ our gang fills in the blanks with words from the audience! This truly interactive musical changes at every performance - thanks to you! Will GoGo get the girl? Will Geyser make new friends? Will Merrily come out of her shell? Will Virtuosa get out of the spotlight? And who will be the next Teen Superstars?? There is only one way to find out: Mad Libs Live!”
