Dear Edwina is now finally making its official Off-Broadway debut at the DR2 Kids Theatre in Union Square this November. Dear Edwina features music by Zina Goldrich with book and lyrics by Marcy Heisler, the award-winning songwriting team behind the critically acclaimed Theatreworks USAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s family musical, Junie B. Jones.
So get a group together and bring every child (and adult) you know, and check out Dear Edwina. Below is a special $29 ticket offer for run (reg ticket price $39), Given the economy, it’s the best deal around town (and better than any musical playing on Broadway today). And from an educational standpoint, the basic life lessons and questions raised by the heroine, Edwina Spoonapple, make Dear Edwina the perfect outing for students aged 5 to 12 or higher. Everyone will leave with smiles on their faces and catchy tunes on their lips.
Here is the $10 off code for French Woods Festival (for $29 tickets)
