Book, music and lyrics by Karl Greenberg and David Halls

A Beanstalk in Brooklyn?? This very hip, New York version of the classic tale follows Jack, a forlorn "artist-type" who is forced to actually work for a living! When he finds the treasures the beanstalk offers, he realizes cell phones and bling-bling may not be the real blessings he was actually looking for! This production is suitable for audiences ages 4 and up.

Music direction by Kirstin Lee Rosenfeld
Direction by Bruce Merrill
