Big Idea Theatre

That same day, the last two speakers of a vanishing tongue arrive to work with George and his love-struck assistant, Emma, to record their language for posterity. This magical tale is filled with love and loss, beginning and endings and examines the force and failings of language.

The Emperor's New Clothes in Broadway THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES
Sutter Street Theatre
It's a sweet deal! Travel to a town and claim to be an expert in something. In fact, claim to be the foremost expert in anything! It doesn't matter, because you skip town after you get the money but before you produce anything. That's the sweet life for two con artists until they accidentally get hired by the Emperor. Now if they don't produce an amazing set of clothes soon, they'll be heading straight for the executioner (if only either one could sew!) Hopefully with the help of the court jester they'll get out of this with their heads, and maybe teach the Emperor a thing or two.
