Hans Christian Andersen's "The Ugly Duckling" has helped generations of children understand one of humanity's universal struggles. Lightwire Theater brings this classic story to the Modern Stage offering hope to us all as we root for the ugly duckling who exemplifies resilience and heroism along the way to becoming a beautiful swan.
