This musical version of Miller's The Creation of the World and Other Business is about the first First Family - Adam and Eve. Which makes it the perfect show for synagogue and church production. How can you go wrong? You have a book by one of America's preeminent playwrights, and music by the celebrated theatrical composer Stanley Silverman, whose music was praised by the New York Times for its "merry use of barbershop, baroque and gospel harmonies."

REVIEWS
