"The original concept was to have a night of 'movies that should not be musicals.' I needed a framing device so you could go from one to another without connecting the stories. This led to the modular idea."

The Revue Reinvents The Modern Musical - Digital Journal, March 11, 2022
"The production will introduce a new structure concept of a “Dynamic Plot,” assuring that no audience will actually see the same story twice. In the show, a director and producer audition the craziest musicals ever conceived in an effort to save their beloved theater from ruin with a sellout show. (Think: Jaws: The Musical as if Meredith Wilson was the composer). The opening and ending numbers are fixed scenes, however the body of the show will be completely malleable with over 50 different “modules” in three parts. Thus, a virtually unlimited permutation of plots can occur. If the audience needs an intermission, they can select that module as well. "

"The production team is keeping the song list out of the Playbill so that everything remains a surprise for the audience, but no movie—or composer—is safe from the skewer. Dooley's written more than 50 songs for The Revue, with one song per fictional musical adaptation—just a 2-minute taste of what each travesty might sound like."
