When I first heard the music from Cbildren of Eden, I immediately fell in love with it. So much, in fact, that I bought a ticket and went to London to see it. Unfortunately, because the Gulf War had ruined tourism, it closed five days before I got there. But now, at last, it's available for production and I have a chance to direct it. I still love the music - more every day I hear it, in fact. We have a wonderful cast who have worked hard and have exceptional talent; Dustin has outdone himself with the set; Candy has designed and constructed costumes that are perfect for the concept; and John has designed lighting that truly enhances the show. Plus, I have another opportunity to work with my son and now also with six of my grandchildren. (And since my daughter and daughter-in-law were here every night with the kids anyway; it's also great having them in the cast.)
Cbildren of Eden is loosely based on the first nine chapters of Genesis, but it is not a theological treatise; rather, it is a play about parents and children, and because you are one or the other or both, we hope you enjoy it.
