New York City Children's Theater To Premiere The Adventures Of HONEY AND LEON: THE MUSICAL!

On October 8th, 2022, New York City Children's Theater will kick off its 26th season with the world premiere of the new musical The Adventures of Honey and Leon!

Based on the book by actor and New York Times Bestselling author Alan Cumming and illustrated by Grant Shaffer, this new musical by Min Kahng and directed by Kimille Howard celebrates the important bond between pets and their owners.

This family-friendly musical tells the story of Honey and Leon, two loyal dogs, and their loving relationship with their jet-setting dads. However, one day, when their dads go off on a work trip, Honey and Leon decide this time they won't sit around and wait for their return. Instead, they go on their European adventure with one mission: find and protect their dads!

The Adventures of Honey and Leon: The Musical celebrates and explores diverse family structures, the joy and struggles of sibling relationships, and self-empowerment.

"I am honored to bring this charming tale about two dogs and their two dads to life on stage," said Min Kahng (Book, Music, and Lyrics) in a statement. "We need more stories that showcase how families come in different combinations. This show will be a celebration of family and love!"

Playing live at Theatre Row from October 8 - 23, 2022 | Best for ages 3-8

Run Time: Approximately 60 minutes
