If you could live forever, would you? That's the eternal question of Tuck Everlasting. In a small New England town, a young girl dreaming of adventure stumbles upon a family with a fabulous secret. Their chance encounter sends them on an unforgettable journey that will test everything they believe about love, life, and what it means to truly feel alive.
With a book by Tony Award nominee Claudia Shear (Dirty Blonde), music by Chris Miller (The Burnt Part Boys), lyrics by Nathan Tysen (The Burnt Part Boys) and directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon), Tuck Everlasting is based on the award-winning novel by Natalie Babbitt.
TUCK EVERLASTING will feature sets by Walt Spangler (A Christmas Story), costumes by two-time Tony Award-winner Gregg Barnes (Follies), lighting by three-time Tony Award-winner Natasha Katz (Once), sound by Tony Award-winner Brian Ronan (The Book of Mormon), orchestrations by Danny Troob (Newsies) and musical direction by Rob Berman (The Pajama Game).
The pre-Broadway production will feature (in alphabetical order): Fred Applegate (Sister Act) as 'Constable Joe,' Marylouise Burke (Fuddy Meers) as 'Nana,' Tony Award nominee Carolee Carmello (Scandalous) as 'Ma Tuck,' David Garrison (Titanic) as 'The Man In The Yellow Suit,' Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Newsies) as 'Jesse Tuck,' Daytime Emmy Award Winner Michael Park (How To Succeed...) as 'Pa Tuck,' Michael Wartella (The Kid) as 'Hugo,' and Valerie Wright (Elf) as 'Mother,' and will introduce Sadie Sink in the role of 'Winnie.' Additional casting, design team members, and Broadway production details will be announced at a later date.
The 1,700 seat Citi Performing Arts Center Emerson Colonial Theatre was designed by Clarence Blackall and first opened its doors for a performance of Ben-Hur on December 20, 1900. In the early and mid 20th century, Boston was considered a launching pad for Broadway producers to try out new productions before bringing them to New York. Boston theatergoers were treated to a sneak peek of many well-known Broadway shows at the Colonial including Anything Goes, Porgy and Bess, Oklahoma!, Annie Get Your Gun, and La Cage aux Folles. This year, July will mark the beginning of a new chapter for the Colonial Theatre. The nonprofit Citi Performing Arts Center will assume operations of the theatre, with a booking agreement with Broadway Across America, ensuring that the Boston tradition of presenting Broadway shows continues in its historic home.
