Lyrics by Martin Charnin

“I walked out as one of the children in the audience, wide eyed, innocent, and optimistic.”

-Sacramento Stage & Theatre


“In John Simpkins’ affecting staging, all the heart-tugging machinations of Thomas Meehan’s trim book and tuneful songs by Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin work their calculated magic to great effect.”

-Sacramento Bee
