The Emperor's New Clothes
Adapted by Ruth Perry.
Hans Christian Andersen
Allan Jay Friedman
Paul Francis Webster
In the witty, enigmatic "Nothing Can Be Something," the lyricist matches the famous ability of author Hans Christian Andersen to combine sweetness, humor and wisdom; and with his climactic love song, "Your Face," he equals or surpasses his familiar Academy Award song, "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing." A handsome prince, embittered by a scheming woman, has run away. His companion is a tough rogue, loyal and brave. Unspeakable villains are conspiring to ruin a neighbor king by exploiting his love of finery, and they throw the companions into a dungeon. A beautiful princess sneaks in at midnight with food for the starving vagabonds. They soon have a chance to match wits with the palace schemers, and there is a very surprising ending! The score by top professionals is thrilling. Area staging.
