Leonard Bernstein's brilliant comic operetta comes to dazzling new life under the guidance of director Lonny Price, starring Broadway's top stars: Patti LuPone, Kristin Chenoweth, Paul Groves, Stanford Olsen, Sir Thomas Allen and the Westminster Symphonic Choir!
Based on the classic Voltaire tale of an innocent young man's journey through a life filled with colorful characters and unexpected life lessons.
The impeccable score (with lyrics by luminaries including Lillian Hellman, Dorothy Parker, Stephen Sondheim, Richard Wilbur and John La Touche) includes a host of delightful songs such as "Life Is Happiness Indeed," "It Must Be So," "You Were Dead, You Know" and "Make Our Garden Grow."
Recorded live at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City in 2004!
