Mike's Cafe Etc is a good pre-show dining spot - tasty food, nice atmosphere, quick service. Or pick up a burrito at Sancho's.

Description

A Broadway Musical Hit for the Holidays

Lyrics & Book by Marsha Norman

Music by Lucy Simon

Based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Directed by Robert Kelley

Lucie Stern Theatre, Palo Alto

Winner of 3 Tony Awards

In this enchanting Broadway hit, the delightful novel springs to life in a soaring musical about the healing power of love. This holiday treat weaves mystery, magic, and a melodic score into the quest of an orphaned English girl to revive a once glorious Victorian garden. In the process, she rekindles lost hopes and weary spirits, dispelling the ghosts of a troubled past with an indomitable joy of life.
