1893.  After a harrowing journey, recent college graduate Leon Tolinchinsky arrives in Kulyenchikov, Ukraine, to tutor Sophia Zubritsky, 19.  Her parents, Nickolai and Leyna, inform him the village is cursed, rendering every resident as dumb as a bag of rocks.  Leon must educate Sofia in 24 hours or fall victim to the curse himself, though teaching her, her parents, or anyone else about anything is just about impossible.   To complicate matters, Leon and Sofia fall in love, infuriating Count Gregor, her long time suitor.  Leon risks everything to break the curse and rescue the village. A musical based on the Neil Simon play, Fools.


Musical Fools premiered at the Ramon C. Cortines School for the Visual and Performing Arts in Los Angeles, California in January 2013 under the direction of Ron West.
