Description

Silver Spoon

by Amy Merrill & Si Kahn

directed by Daniel Gidron

The world-premiere musical, Silver Spoon, delights with toe-tapping folk numbers and rousing ballads. Working-class Brooklyn and upper-crust Manhattan collide in the idealistic days of the late 1960s as two young lovers fight for justice and search for acceptance from their families, society, and each other. With book by Cambridge’s own Amy Merrill and music and lyrics by popular songwriter and activist Si Kahn. Directed by The Nora Theatre Company’s Associate Director Daniel Gidron.
