Project Description/Abstract

The world-famous composer-lyricist, Richard Adler (The Pajama Game, Damn Yankees) has written a group of stories and songs for children, entitled The Deedledock World of Figeldeesnaybop. In December 2006, Mr. Adler asked me to collaborate with him in a project to create an original musical play for children and grownups, based on those unpublished stories and songs, and to secure professional production at Goodspeed Opera House or a similar professional theater. Since the stories are in narrative form to be read as a book, I will adapt them to the medium of live theater and write a playscript replacing the narrative with dialogue and action, including character interaction, dance, scenic and costume effects, incorporating Richard Adler’s music and lyrics for stage performance.
