“Tuck Everlasting: The Musical,” based on the American children’s novel by author Natalie Babbitt, features music by Chris Miller, lyrics by Nathan Tysen and a book by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, with direction and choreography by Casey Nicholaw. The musical premiered at Atlanta’s Alliance Theater in 2015, began Broadway previews on March 31, 2016, and opened on April 26, 2016, at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City. Alexis Bledel and Jonathan Jackson starred in the popular and much-loved film version in 2002.
Asking some of life’s most introspective questions, such as “what would you do if you could live forever on earth?” and “what if you had unending youth?,” the story begins in Treegap, N.H., where each character shares their deepest desires. Central character Winnie Foster yearns for a life of adventure beyond her white picket fence, but it’s not until she becomes unexpectedly entwined with the Tuck family that she gets more adventure than she could have imagined.
When Winnie learns of the magic behind the Tucks’ everlasting youth, she must fight to protect their secret from those who would do anything for a chance at eternal life. As her adventure unfolds, Winnie faces an extraordinary choice—return to her life or continue with the Tucks on their infinite journey.
