Leo Lionni’s Inch By Inch

Our Theatre for the Very Young Series continues in August 2019 with our world premiere of Leo Lionni’s Caldecott winning book, Inch By Inch. Our youngest theatre goers will be immersed in the whimsical and sweet story that dares to ask, “Can a song be measured?” Our littlest patrons will meet up with our winsome inchworm who can measure anything under the sun.

[title of show] - Directed by Roni P Musical Director Danny Glass

Jeff and Hunter, two struggling writers, hear about a new musical theatre festival. However, the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. With nothing to lose, the pair decides to try to create something new with the help of their friends Susan, Heidi and Larry on the eighty-eights.

With the cast in place, Jeff and Hunter begin a conversation about what to write about. Eventually, Jeff suggests they write about what to write about. They make a pact to write up until the festival’s
deadline and dream about the show changing their lives.

[title of show]—taken from the space on the festival’s application form which asks for the [title of show]—follows Hunter and Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self- expression. In the span of 90 minutes they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists.

[title of show] is, above all, a love letter to the musical theatre—a uniquely American art form—and to the joy of
collaboration.

The musical received a Tony Award® nomination for Best Book of a Musical in 2009.

Music & Lyrics by
Jeff Bowen
Book by
Hunter Bell
