Director: Rip Pellaton, Producer: David Corkum, Musical Director: Chris Costello, Choreographer: Paige Pellaton.
The first act, "The Diary Of Adam And Eve," is a quirky, touching spin on the tale of the world's first couple, adapted from Mark Twain's Extracts From Adam's Diary. The second act, "The Lady Or The Tiger?," explores the fickleness of love in a rock and roll fable set in a mythical barbarian kingdom. Finally, "Passionella" is based on Jules Feiffer's offbeat Cinderella-story about a chimney sweep whose dreams of being a "glamorous movie star" nearly sabotage her one chance for true love.
Witty, tuneful and utterly charming, these fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek musical miniatures are filled with the warmth and humanity that is the hallmark of Harnick and Bock.
