Hockey - The Musical! a show Mitch Albom laughingly describes as "Spamalot - with hockey sticks" returns to the City Theatre Thursday this summer.
The concept is sure to draw theater fans and sports fans alike: When the Lord decides the world has too many sports, He decides to wipe out one -- hockey - to teach mankind a lesson. Only five mismatched fans can try and save their beloved game in this hysterical, raucous, foot-tapping musical with book, original music and lyrics by Mitch Albom.
The musical, which takes place in a mythical hockey rink and combines original compositions with popular classics, will be directed by Peter Albom and choreographed by Gabe Nesser. Several of the original songs include "Put On Skates," "Kill Baseball," "Oh, Octopus, My Octopus," 'God is a Canuck' and "When You're A Wing.' Familiar melodies will include everything from 50's and 60's rock and roll to "Toot, Toot, Tootsie Goodbye."
