what the critics are saying
 


“The sound and rhythm of music that runs through childhood fantasies with a book that conveys the communicative magic of the original story.”
–The New York Times


“A new and sensational musical. Although it's geared for a younger audience, it's a great musical for all ages.”
–Newsday


“Child-size entertainment with adult-size talent – the music alone should have all ages soaring!”
–NY1

 


Captain Louie
World Premiere Recording

CAPTAIN LOUIE is a family musical with music & lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Pippin). Adapted for the stage by Anthony Stein, from the book The Trip by Caldecott Award-winner Ezra Jack Keats (who authored and illustrated 24 children's classics, including the Caldecott Award-winning The Snowy Day and the Caldecott Honor Book Goggle), it's the story of a young boy on Halloween night who escapes into his own imagination to cope with the loneliness he feels when he moves to a new neighborhood. The New York Times said it captures "the sound and rhythm of music that runs through childhood fantasies with a book that conveys the communicative magic of the original story."
