Children of Eden
Book by John Caird, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Based on a concept by Charles Lisanby
Directed by Philip Doll III
Freely based on the story of Genesis, “Children Of Eden” is a frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. Adam, Eve, Noah and the “Father” who created them deal with the headstrong, cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: that "the hardest part of love... is letting go."
