New York City
A heartwarming new musical based on the book by one of America’s favorite television personalities, Katie Couric’s The Brand New Kid begins on the very first day of second grade, and Lazlo is the new kid in school. He’s your typical seven-year-old boy, but because he doesn’t look or speak quite like the others, he is teased and taunted. When Ellie McSnelly spends an afternoon with him playing soccer and eating strudel, the two teach their classmates a valuable lesson. This uplifting new musical proves that being yourself is always the best way to be.
