Muny, or the Municipal Opera Association of St. Louis, Missouri, in
the United States, is a not-for-profit municipally-owned outdoor
theatre, the largest in the United States. The Theater was built
and opened in 1917 with 6 performances of Verdi's Aida. It operates
solely in the summer, and its first official season ran from June
to August 1919. In the beginning, it presented the latest operas of
the time, calling on local performers and national celebrities
alike to perform for a short run of a one to, on occasion, three
week run. More recently, however, the Muny has shifted to
presenting musicals, some old, some new, and some of the Muny's own
creation. Here follows a list of the many shows that the Muny has
presented in its summer seasons, with known dates included. The
Muny is currently in its 92nd season (for the summer of 2010).
Interesting patterns in the repertory include that the 1919 season
was the only one to hold all new productions (being the first
season). The 1946 and 1993 seasons, in contrast, have been the only
summers where no new shows were added to the repertory. The
superscript notes below denote first productions (premieres), world
premieres, in-season concerts, etc. at the Muny. Muny Premiere:

Event: Ice Show: Original Revue: Featuring mayor Henry...
