The second production of this summer's Theatre Lab Musical Theatre Institute for Teens is Children of Eden. An epic musical, Children of Eden starts with the very beginning: the creation of the universe. Drawing from the Book of Genesis, its authors have examined the familiar stories of Adam, Eve, Cain, Abel and many other iconic figures through a family lens.
Exploring themes of parenting, personal choices, the value of questioning and, ultimately, the need for “letting go” of the ones you love. With music that is at turns soaring, foot-stomping and deeply moving, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked) and John Caird (Les Misérables) created a musical that is joyful, inspiring, poignant, and full of humor.
