About this show

Captain Louie, a new family musical with music and lyrics by Academy and Grammy-Award winner Stephen Schwartz, has its world premiere at The York Theatre Company. Based on the picture book The Trip by Caldecott Award-winning author Ezra Jack Keats, Captain Louie is directed by Meridee Stein, with music direction by Edward Barnes and choreography by Joshua Bergasse. Young Louie feels lonely and without friends in his new neighborhood. Looking for something to cheer himself up on Halloween Night, Louie returns to his old neighborhood friends in an imaginative journey on the wings of his favorite toy, his little red plane. The story is full of tricks and treats, and the incomparable music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz. Most of all, Captain Louie is about friendship -- the ability to make new friends and the importance of old ones.
