tuckThe Alliance Theatre’s world premiere of Tuck Everlasting, about a 10-year-old girl who stumbles onto a family’s fabulous secret, turns Natalie Babbitt’s popular 1975 novel into a musical. No one’s saying, but this piece has all the earmarks of a show bound for Broadway. The script is by Tony Award nominee Claudia Shear; the score by the young, award-winning team of Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen; the direction by Tony winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of MormonAladdin, The Drowsy ChaperoneSpamalot). The cast is led by two-time Tony nominee Carolee Carmello (Parade, Scandalous), two-time Tony nominee Terrence Mann (Pippin, Beauty and the Beast), Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Newsies, Mary Poppins, Seussical) and Atlanta actor Sarah Charles Lewis. Performances begin Jan. 21.
