Genre & Style:
A vibrant, vivacious retelling of the myth of forbidden lovers. The book sparkles with sly wit, the songs are by turns laugh-out-loud funny and achingly romantic, and the classical tale shines anew, making for a luminous, deeply-felt show in the magical vein of The Fantasticks and Pippin.

Amas Musical Theatre (NY), Eugene O’Neill Theater Center (CT), National Music Theatre Network (DC), Oregon Cabaret Theatre (OR), The Spirit of Broadway Theater (CT), Village Theatre (WA), New Jersey Repertory (NJ) in 2008.
