Two River presents this world premiere family-friendly musical about a young girl who heads to NYC to see her first Broadway musical. Featuring a book by Tony Award winners Wendy Wasserstein and Christopher Durang. More…
The musical tells the story of Pamela, an unhappy, imaginative young girl whose mother has died. Her father, though well-meaning, doesn't fully understand his creative, unusual daughter. When Pamela's eccentric and fabulous Aunt Louise sweeps her away on her birthday to see her very first Broadway musical, Pamela meets many of the colorful personalities of the New York Theater world. In meeting them and watching a clever musical-within-a-musical, Pamela discovers her tribe and the place where, as she sings, "all the pieces fit"-the world of musical theater.
