All the drama and romance of the famous Robin Hood legend in a brand new opera. They’re all there: Robin Hood, Maid Marian, Friar Tuck, Little John, the Merry Men, Richard the Lionhearted, the evil Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham. It’s the original legend from the original sources, but told like Les Miz in an all sung opera that is filled with the familiar phrases of the Robin Hood legend. Songs like “Bow and Arrow,” “Let the Better Man Pass,” “Take from the Rich,” “Behold the Merry Men,” and the haunting anthem “Sherwood Forest” create a bold new work.

From the Facebook Event Page:
Broadway comes To PPC for one night only, when husband and wife musical theater composers JASON ROBERT BROWN and GEORGIA STITT share the stage with their talented friends.
JASON ROBERT BROWN has been hailed as “one of Broadway’s smartest and most sophisticated songwriters since Stephen Sondheim” (Philadelphia Inquirer), and his “extraordinary, jubilant theater music” (Chicago Tribune) has been heard all over the world, whether in one of the hundreds of productions of his musicals every year or in his own incendiary live performances.
GEORGIA STITT has been called “a songwriter with a truly distinctive writing voice; a voice that blends theater, pop and classical flavors into a sound all her own” (Craig Carnelia). Her music is “highly recommended. Reflective and personal, but with the intelligence and craft of good theatre songs” (National Public Radio).

Book and Lyrics by Mark Waldrop
Music by Brad Ross
Based on a story by Isaac Bashevis Singer
Directed by Calvin Remsberg
In this fractured folk-tale based on a story by Isaac Bashevis Singer, Mazel and Shlimazel, the spirits of Good Luck and Bad Luck, make a bet to determine who is the more powerful. The terms: Mazel will take a hapless young man named Tam under her wing for one year, at the end of which Shlimazel will attempt to undo everything she has done in one second. And that’s the point when Tam and the beautiful princess with whom he’s fallen in love must rely on their own ingenuity to save the kingdom and keep Tam’s neck out of the hangman’s noose. Along the way, matters are complicated by a crafty prime minister, a superstitious nurse, and a lion on the loose!
