MTW's Reiner Reading Series, produced by Michael Betts and David Lamoureux, focuses on staged readings of classic musicals and forgotten gems and maintains MTW's commitment to celebrate and preserve musical theater as an art form by exposing audiences to works of that might not otherwise be produced on a larger scale. Through the minimalism of the staged reading format, we invite the audience to use their imagination to explore and enjoy the diverse range of musical theatre, both in style and era, including lesser-known shows by noted composers as well as noted shows by lesser-known composers.
Never seen since its original New York run, Musical Theatre West presents LEGS DIAMOND in a staged reading format for one night only tonight, December 2, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at the University Theater on the CSU Long Beach campus at the 7th Street entrance.
