Encores! presents The Apple Tree, starring Kristen Chenoweth. Featuring music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and a book by Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick and Jerome Coopersmith.
The Apple Tree is a unique evening of three one-act musicals about men, women and a little thing called temptation from the songwriting team of Fiddler On The Roof and She Loves Me. The first one-act based on Mark Twain's "The Diary Of Adam and Eve" is a quirky, touching spin on the tale of the world's first couple. The second, "The Lady Or The Tiger?," explores the fickleness of love in a fable set in a mythical barbarian kingdom. Finally, "Passionella" is based on Jules Feiffer's offbeat Cinderella-story about a chimney sweep whose dreams of being a "glamorous movie star" nearly sabotage her one chance for true love. Notable songs include "What Makes Me Love Him?," "Go To Sleep Whatever You Are," and "Oh, To Be A Movie Star."
