Meet the New York Musical Festival's Forest Boy
A production inspired by a true story takes the stage.
Three years ago, a young man turned up in Berlin, claiming that he had spent five years living in the wild. The story inspired the musical Forest Boy, which will receive its Big Apple premiere in the 2016 New York Musical Festival. During a recent press event, star Will Connolly, and creators Claire McKenzie and Scott Gilmour discussed the journey that led to this production. But if you want to find out what happens to the real-life Forest Boy, you have to come see the show.
