PHILADELPHIA PREMIERE Join us for this breathtaking adventure by two-time Newbery Medal-winning author Kate DiCamillo (Because of Winn Dixie, The Tale of Despereaux), adapted by Dwayne Hartford, featuring music by Erik Hellman and Jessie Fisher (Once on Broadway). As a very dignified china rabbit travels from the arms of a child to the bottom of the ocean, from a trash heap to a moving train, from the streets of Memphis to worlds beyond, this epic journey reminds us of the transformative power of love and friendship. Based on his Chicago Children’s Theatre production, Stuart Carden directs this must-see play for all generations that is “so captivating for every age whether you happen to be accompanied by children or not” (Chicago Sun Times).
Approximate run time is 80 minutes with no intermission. Best enjoyed by ages 8+
There will be a post-show Talkback following every performance of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.
