An adaptation of the novel Walk Two Moons opened Off Broadway on Wednesday night. Presented by Theatreworks/USA, the production continues through August 14th. From Playbill comes this description:
The play by Julia Jordan, which is adapted from the book of the same name by Sharon Creech, "follows a girl on a road trip across the country with her eccentric grandparents. Her tales of life back home, by turns hilarious and touching, create a journey within a journey as she and her know-it-all best friend discover that things aren’t always what they seem."
The New York Times featured Theatreworks/USA in an article by Julie Salamon. The children's theater company certainly knows its market. I thought this quote was hilarious:
Even better training, perhaps, are the young test audiences the company routinely uses to fine-tune productions. "You can watch from the balcony while they fidget," [Nell Benjamin, a composer and lyricist] said. "Adults at least sit still during the show and only tell you after. Kids start hitting each other and you know, man, that number isn't working."
