Book by TIMOTHY ALLEN MCDONALD
Music and Lyrics by BENJ PASEK & JUSTIN PAUL
Based on the book, "James and the Giant Peach" by Roald Dahl.
Based on the beloved 1961 children’s book, the musical playfully recreates Dahl’s coming-of-age story and features a wickedly groovy score from Tony-winning duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach... and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach, among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James' quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building. A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure.
