Because what child doesn't love EURIPIDES?????

Coming new show. It's based loosely on Euripides' "Iphigenia in Tauris." And "Twelfth Night." And honestly, there's some Simpsons in there. Also Abbott and Costello. And a bit from Mary Tyler Moore. And "Valley of the Dolls." And yes, it's for kids. Stop making that sound. It is so for kids. Not everything I write is about doing terrible things to babies. I have facets.

It's "Effie Jean in Tahiti," with music and lyrics by Stephen Speights, frequent collaborator & Blue Coyote guy. This is the first time he's done music on a show of mine, though, since "A Bush Carol" about six years ago. We've got a great cast, choreography by Jonathan Hollander of Battery Dance, and we're all pretty excited.

So here's the info.

And here's where you buy tickets.
