About the Show

In The Secret Garden, Grammy–winning composer Lucy Simon and Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Marsha Norman ('night, Mother) reimagine Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic children’s novel into an enchanting musical for the young and the young at heart. Orphaned in India, 11 year–old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his sickly son Colin. “Dreamers” — spirits from Mary's past — guide her through her new life as she discovers the estate's many wonders, including a magical garden that beckons the children with haunting melodies. This magical tale of forgiveness and renewal is sure to delight musical theatre lovers of all ages.
