The way they craftily weave their humor and story telling into their singing ties the whole night together into a performance that keeps you entertained the entire night. Been coming for years and TMBT is a permanent entry on our yearly calendar.

Discovered Music Box Theater a couple of years ago now. See several shows a year and have never been disappointed. Truly talented group of people who put on a terrific show. If you have the chance to go, don't miss it!

Fabulous cabaret singing. And fun costumes. This was a year in review performance with comedy sketches between songs from all eras since the 60’s. Cay Taylor was captivating in Grammy award winning leather pants!
