A many-layered musical benefit

1234 The Miami-based Roxy Theatre Group is a company dedicated to teaching and showcasing talented young actors, usually in lavish large-cast musicals.  But this weekend, four Roxy teachers take the stage in a much smaller piece, a musical about creating a musical.  That would be [title of show], a musical that began in 2004 when composer-lyricist Jeff Bowen and playwright Hunter Bell decided to create something for the New York Musical Theatre Festival -- and eventually wound up on Broadway.

Featured in the short Roxy run are Andrew Rodriguez-Triana as Jeff, Nicole Quintana as Susan, Charles A. Sothers as Hunter and Monica Grimaldi as Heidi.  They'll be accompanied by pianist Douglas McCall.

Performances are 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday at the Roxy Performing Arts Center, 1645 SW 107th Ave., Miami.  Tickets are just $12 ($10 for students, though the show is recommended for ages 17 and up), and proceeds benefit the Roxy Theatre Group's Teachers' Scholarship Fund.
