Book & Lyrics by Peter Kellogg, Music by Stephen Weiner, Directed by Eric Tucker

The Rivals, the famously funny farce with Mrs. Malaprop, is now a hilarious new musical. Be the first audience to experience this Broadway-bound, world premiere with book and lyrics by two-time Tony nominee, Peter Kellogg, and music by two-time Richard Rodgers Award-winner, Stephen Weiner.

Featuring glorious music and witty repartee, The Rivals follows the travails of Lydia Languish, a young lady in possession of a large fortune, who will lose two-thirds of that fortune if she marries without her guardian, Mrs. Malaprop’s consent. But, who needs money when you’re in love? As Mrs. Malaprop would say, “It’s a musical to delight the heart and tackle the funny bone.”
