“Children of Eden,” a musical by Stephen Schwartz (music and lyrics) and John Caird (book)
From Stephen Schwartz, the composer of “Wicked,” “Godspell” and “Pippin,” comes a beautiful re-telling of the most ancient of stories; humankind’s struggle to understand the source of creation and the meaning of life. Based on the book of Genesis, “Children of Eden” explores these universal themes through the perennial clash of generational strife between parents and children. With its gorgeous score, featuring some of Schwartz’s most beloved songs, including “Lost in the Wilderness” and “In Whatever Time We Have,” this uplifting musical explores love, desire, choice, rebellion, second chances, reconciliation and promise. The show is appropriate for the entire family.
