2016-2017 ATLANTIC FOR KIDS SEASON
1001 NIGHTS: A LOVE STORY ABOUT LOVING STORIES
Music and Lyrics by Robert Lopez
Book by Adam Koplan and Robert Lopez
Directed by Adam Koplan
This newly reimagined musical production of 1001 Nights features early songs by Oscar, Grammy, Tony and Emmy Award winner Robert Lopez (Avenue Q,The Book of Mormon, and Disney’s Frozen). In this celebration of brainy imagination over brawn, a princess uses her wits to save a kingdom from an evil decree as she spins tale after tale for a narrow-minded king. This playful adaptation of the “Arabian Nights” fairy tales is recommended for ages six and up, but welcomes children of all ages! Originally produced by The Flying Carpet Theatre and The Center for Puppetry Arts, Atlanta, Georgia.
