This is part of the Musical Theatre West Reiner Reading Series which produces musicals in a "semi-concert setting". The performances are with minimal costumes and props and with scripts in hand. Otherwise there is live music and the performances I have seen have all been very good.
The performers are mostly professional. These are not student productions.
Kismet was 1953's Best Musical and includes well-known tunes like "Stranger in Paradise," "Baubles, Bangles, and Beads," and "Not Since Ninevah". It is a Middle-Eastern-set story of a scheming poet and his daughter, who get mixed up in adventure and romance.
