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.

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.
