THE APPLE TREE is a unique evening of three one-act musicals about men, women and a little thing called temptation from the songwriting team of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and SHE LOVES ME.
The first act, "The Diary Of Adam And Eve," is a quirky, touching spin on the tale of the world's first couple, adapted from Mark Twain's Extracts From Adam's Diary. The second act, "The Lady Or The Tiger?," explores the fickleness of love in a rock and roll fable set in a mythical barbarian kingdom. Finally, "Passionella" is based on Jules Feiffer's offbeat Cinderella-story about a chimney sweep whose dreams of being a "glamorous movie star" nearly sabotage her one chance for true love.
Witty, tuneful and utterly charming, these fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek musical miniatures may be presented separately or in any combination, to fill out a theatrical evening. Each is modest in production requirements and filled with the warmth and humanity that is the hallmark of Harnick and Bock.
