The creative team behind the Broadway hits Seussical, Ragtime, My Favorite Year, and Lucky Stiff, have now added song and dance and a castle full of characters to the children’s tale made famous by Hans Christian Andersen.
In this enchanting adaptation, Emperor Marcus the Third wonders how he can possibly run an empire when he's only 14 years old. In an attempt to appear more mature to his people, he accepts the credo that "clothes make the man," but soon finds himself the center of a hoax. But after finding himself in a royal mess, he eventually learns the important lesson that no matter how grand or small you appear, the person who counts is the person in here! And here, as everyone knows, is your heart.
