Wind in the Willows
Adapted by Jane Iredale; Based on the Novel by Kenneth Grahame; Lyrics by Roger McGough, William Perry; Music by William Perry
Directed by Dee Baldock
The unforgettable characters from Kenneth Grahame's beloved classic spring to life in this sparkling Broadway musical adaptation. Mole, a curious girl who leaves her underground life for one of adventure, meets the kindly Water Rat, who agrees to show her the world. That world includes the eccentric and wealthy Mr. Toad, whose outrageous enthusiasm for life, and especially for motor cars, brings trouble for everyone. In a fight with the belligerent Weasels to recapture Toad's ancestral home, the old boxing champion, Mr. Badger, leads them to victory. Much more than a show about animals with human characteristics, WIND IN THE WILLOWS is about the delicate balance among all living things, and the surpassing value of friendship.
