Top Gun!: The Musical

Anagram Entertainment Presents
Top Gun! The Musical
at Empire Stage
Music by Scott White
Book and Lyrics by Denis McGrath
Feb 9 – Mar 4

Singing. Satire. Subtext. All at Mach 3! If you see only one musical comedy about mounting a mega-musical based on the movie Top Gun, make it Top Gun! The Musical. You’ll laugh. You’ll hum. You’ll believe a jet can fly!

For anyone who’s ever cringed through Cats, felt the need for speed or wondered, “who thought THAT would be a good idea?”, comes this new satirical musical. Writer Billy Palmer’s about to crash and burn. His musical adaptation of Top Gun is going off the rails and Billy really needs a hit after the debacle of Apocalypse Wow! Instead he’s saddled with a quarrelling cast, a shady ex-Navy Seal producer and a bit of bad luck. Now if only everyone would stop singing!

Top Gun! The Musical was the most successful show in the history of the Toronto Fringe Festival, playing to sell out crowds and unanimously good reviews.
