The Secret Garden

"The Secret Garden occupies a special place in the minds of musical theater buffs: It’s smart and sensitive, a fable with a cranky hunchback uncle and a misfit little girl that steadfastly avoids cartoonishness and the bludgeoning approach of so many antsy, eager-to-please Broadway shows. Lucy Simon’s score has a yearning, magical pulse, and book writer-lyricist Marsha Norman’s adaptation of the beloved 1911 children’s novel has always been blessedly grown up, even as it welcomes audiences of nearly all ages."
-The Washington Post

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

After losing her parents to the cholera epidemic in India, 0-year-old Mary Lennox is sent to live in her morose uncle's gloomy mansion on the wild English moors. While he is still grieving the death of his wife ten years ago Mary wanders the grounds.  Lonely with no one to play with but a wild sparrow, one day she learns of a secret garden somewhere in the grounds that no one is allowed to enter.  When she discovers the key, with the help of her woodland friend, Mary seeks refuge in her late aunt’s mysterious walled garden. Mary unearths a renewed sense of spirit for herself and her sickly cousin, bringing the weary estate and its occupants back to exuberant life with the full force of spring.  The Secret Garden is a story of hardship turned into hope, of beauty discovered in unlikely places, the power of the child to see past obstacles adults cannot.

 With book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman and music by Lucy Simon, this captivating show will mesmerize audiences of all ages and transport you to a world where beauty and love blossom, and a forgotten seed of life can still flourish.
