LUCK! A Musical
by Mark Waldrop, Brad Ross, Isaac Bashevis Singer
Full Length Musical, Comedy / 6m, 6f
In this fractured folk tale based on a story by Isaac Bashevis Singer, Mazel and Shlimazel, the spirits of Good Luck and Bad Luck, make a bet to determine who is the more powerful.
"LUCK! is a true family event, a great story that will keep first time theatergoers engrossed and experienced theater lovers entertained not only because its book is based on a wonderful Issac Bashevis Singer story but because its glorious story-driven score will have you humming the songs as you leave the theater. It's perfect for theaters of all sizes and budgets. It can be done in grand style or on a bare stage. You can double the size of the cast or do it with a handful of actors; however you do it, everyone will have a chance to shine." - Anthony Gruppuso, Producer
