About this show

From the creative team behind the Broadway hits Dreamgirls and Side Show comes the delightful musical Lucky Duck, an uproarious new adaptation of The Ugly Duckling. This rollicking production follows homely songbird Serena from her fowl days of barnyard mockery to her triumphant success as a supermodel swan. Viewed as an odd duck by her family, Serena flees the farm to seek her special destiny in the big city. With the help of some unexpected animal allies, she soon comes out of her shell, and decked out in high fashion feathers, she enters a national singing contest, her heart set on the championship and a date with the prince! As her journey progresses, she discovers that beauty is only feather deep, and she must find her own voice to succeed. Although based on a children's story, this play is aimed at adult audiences, featuring a hot pop score by Henry Krieger (music) and Bill Russell (lyrics), filled with R&B, gospel and plenty of Broadway-style showstoppers.
