LOVE AND OTHER FABLES Music by JOHN McMAHON Lyrics by JAY JEFFRIES Book by JOHN McMAHON & JAY JEFFRIES Director: JAY BINDER Choreographer: PARKER ESSE Music Director: ED GOLDSCHNEIDER
The 2019 season will open with the World Premiere of a brand new romantic screwball musical comedy, Love and Other Fables. Set on the Greek island of Samos in 600 B. C., Love and Other Fables follows the early life of Aesop, the not-yet-famous slave, as he creates the “fable,” persistently woos the headstrong girl of his dreams, enters into a battle of wits with the King of Egypt and changes the course of history. Written by John McMahon and Jay Jeffries, the original concert version garnered a review from The Chicago Sun-Times, which said “[Love and Other Fables] shows every sign of becoming a surprise hot property. The three songs sampled certainly win my prize for the most astonishing, whip-smart lyrics, with one rapid-fire rhyming line after another perfectly attuned to its properly pronounced syllables.” The production at Theatre By The Sea will be the first fully-staged production of the musical, as it continues its journey to Broadway.
