Winner! Anna Zorino Award for Children's Playwriting
In the kingdom of Baloneya, the law says that King Fredipus is always right - even when he's wrong! When his mistakes start to cause real harm, only a shy peasant girl named Samantha finds the courage to speak up and the ingenuity to set things right. How she does so gives the show its title, as she calls upon the audience to assist her in the hilarious creation of The Nastiest Drink in the World.
This award-winning musical by Mark Loewenstern (Carnality) and John Gregor Pinkalicious The Musical received enthusiastic reviews from The New York Times, NY1 and The Off-Off Broadway Review.

A fun, easy-to-produce fable about humility and courage, The Nastiest Drink in the World is a sweet treat for children and adults alike.
