Children of Eden - Family Friendly musical from the composer of Wicked
Children of Eden opened last Sunday post NEMO, the blizzard of 2013, to a small but appreciative audience. The show is visually stunning and the vocal work by this talented cast is not to be missed. We have tickets available for four more opportunities at the Arsenal Center for the Arts, Mosesian Theatre to this production.
From the creators of Wicked, Godspell, and Les Misérables, comes a joyous, inspirational musical about parents, children, and faith... not to mention centuries of unresolved family business! Freely based on the book of Genesis, Children of Eden is a celebration the whole family can enjoy and one to which they can perhaps relate. Through the stories of Adam & Eve and Noah & his Ark, this beautiful musical shows us how choices, consequences, and lov...e shape the families of which we are a part. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: "the hardest part of love... is letting go."
If you are looking for something to do with your children to kick off their February vacation, then your children would really enjoy seeing this production. It provides an opportunity to introduce them to live theatre or to remind them how much fun it can be to perform. If you have never had the pleasure of visiting the Arsenal Center of the Arts, this is a perfect time to do so If you choose a
matinee performance for younger children, you are surrounded by kid-friendly restaurants in and around the Arsenal Center.
This very talented cast is directed by Chris Brindley. Chris is well known for his work with the Weston Drama Workshop as is Chris Holownia, the music director. Both
