A parody in accordance with fair use law.
A grisly murder has taken place, and cops and lawyers can't stop screwing up their quest for justice. Who killed the seemingly saintly housewife turned prostitute? Is it mob related? A closeted gay foodie? A pompous doorman? Each twist leads to more absurdity and perhaps some insight into what truly ails our criminal justice system. Think Airplane!... with songs and social commentary.
Book and lyrics by Ilyse Mimoun. Music by Jeremy Adelman. Directed by Ilyse Mimoun. Presented by Blooming Damsels Productions. World Premiere.

Even if one never saw the actual TV show it’s attempting to satirize, one still has a very witty, hilarious, and entertaining musical that proves that law and order is in lawful order!

And for the record, this program is labeled as a parody in accordance with fair use law. This means that the producers are saying in their own ways, “Can’t you take a joke?” The audience can and will laugh their way through until the cops and court can provide who’s guilty and who’s gonna walk! Until the next week’s episode…

Sometimes when one has a craving to satisfy, it isn’t filet mignon that one hankers for, but maybe just a really good burger. Sometimes when one goes to the theatre to see a new show, you don’t know what to expect. Will it be a burger or filet mignon? How will it satisfy an inveterate theatregoer who has seen and reviewed hundreds, if not thousands of performances? A title can give a clue. A press release can titillate the proverbial palate with well chosen tropes. Law and Order: The Musical, a new show with book and lyrics by Ilyse Mimoun and music by Jeremy Adelman, which just opened at The Broadwater Second Stage, tickles expectation. What the show delivers is an umami burger, a delicious pastiche of spoofery, an extended, eighty-minute slice of SNL-esque buffoonery, with a bountiful serving of silly, snappy dialogue garnished with enthusiastic song and dance.
