WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A bold and brand new version of Voltaire's wicked satire, this sexy, funny musical cuts to the core and will rock, shock and thrill you! Leonard Bernstein's legendary score is brought to vivid life by an all-star cast of Philadelphia's finest. Expect the unexpected. This acclaimed Bernstein musical plots the bizarre life of its hero Candide, as he searches the world over for his love Cunégonde and confirmation of the notion that "we live in the best of all possible worlds." After receiving a thorough indoctrination in this wayward philosophy by his mentor Dr. Pangloss, Candide makes the mistake of becoming romantically involved with the beautiful Cunégonde. Caught in the act, Candide is thrown out onto the street to fend for himself. It is here that the adventure begins. Impervious to battles, bigotry, confidence tricks, natural disasters and a huge cast of characters, each one more eccentric than the last, Candide is buffeted from Paris to Venice by way of Buenos Aires, before he finally learns the simple lesson about where true happiness can be found.
