About this show

Runaways is a 1978 Broadway musical by Elizabeth Swados about the lives of children who run away from home and live on the city streets. The characters were taken from workshops conducted by Swados with real-life runaways in the late 1970's. In this new production, reworked and directed by Rodney Hicks (Rent, Jacques Brel...) and musically arranged and with musical direction by Eric Svejcar (Caligula:The Musical, Jacques Brel...) the stories of these young people have been updated and thus made more poignant by their relevance to the challenges today's youth face. A portion of the proceeds go to benefit The Joey DiPaolo AIDS Foundation and CAMP TLC.
