A tale as old as time…

From musical theatre greats, Stephen Schwartz and John Caird, comes a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith… not to mention centuries of unresolved family business!

Adam, Eve, Noah and the “Father” who created them deal with the headstrong, cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet, but inspiring, message: that “the hardest part of love… is letting go.”

“This is the most ambitious and impressive score to date by Schwartz, and it is spiced with a variety of jubilant tunes, haunting melodies and sensitive lyrics. Restructured and revised in regional theater productions, it certainly appears to be ready, and its future seems assured.” – Variety(1997)
