Kid Victory

by John Kander & Greg Pierce

February 17 – March 22, 2015


The highly anticipated and chilling world premiere musical from legendary composer John Kander and acclaimed playwright Greg Pierce (The Landing).

Seventeen-year-old Luke returns home after vanishing a year ago. Profoundly changed, Luke and his parents struggle to adjust to life following his disappearance. Only finding solace with Emily, the quirky proprietor of an offbeat garden shop, Luke grapples with a past undone and a coming of age that came too late to a boy who just wants to fade away.

The second collaboration between Kander (Chicago, Cabaret) and Pierce (Slowgirl), Kid Victory is a hauntingly mesmerizing original musical about what it means to disappear.
