The legendary composer Richard Rodgers entered his seventh decade of writing for the theatre with Broadway's 1970 Two by Two starring Danny Kaye. The story of Noah and the Ark is a musical adaptation of Clifford Odets' play The Flowering Peach and is retold with Noah and his family characterized in modern Jewish vernacular. It seems that the building of the ark was only the first of Noah's many daunting challenges in a journey that wasn't always smooth sailing. By turns inspirational and hilarious, it's good fun from The Good Book and when the land has dried, man and beast alike are invited to go forth and prosper in a bright New World. Lyricist Martin Charnin directs this production with a revised book by Peter Stone and featuring one of Richard Rodgers' most touching--and least known--scores.
