Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Book by Philip LaZebnik
From Stephen Schwartz, the award-winning composer of Wicked, Pippin and Godspell, and Philip LeZebnik, writer of Pocahontas and Mulan, comes My Fairytale – the new musical chronicling the journey of one of the worlds’ greatest storytellers – Hans Christian Andersen – into the enchanted realm of his own imagination. Hans discovers a place of wonder, mystery and danger, in the shape of the characters from his fairytales. When he must venture deep into the realm of his subconscious to find the Nightingale for the ailing Emperor, he will have to overcome the interference of the fantastic fairytale characters, an interfering boy, and a nefarious shadow. It’s a story of a man who must search his own mind and heart to determine who he truly is.
