Frank Loesser's wonderous story about adventure, magic and the pleasures of small town living.

Based on B.J. Chute's novel of the same name, Greenwillow is the tale of a magical town whose inhabitants see no reason to leave the comforts of home... except for the Briggs men. The story concerns Gideon Briggs, who, like his father before him, is cursed with a powerful wanderlust. But, when Gideon meets the lovely Dorrie Whitbred, he vows to overcome the "call" once and for all. While the gloomy Reverend Lapp wrestles with the town over their souls, the arrival of Reverend Birdsong encourages the citizens of Greenwillow to trust their hearts, helping Gideon listen to a new "call" and find his way back home for good.

With a lush, romantic score and a cast of quirky, fablebook characters, Greenwillow is a Broadway charmer with opportunities for actors of all ages.
