Looking for a new show to see with the kids? Then you’ve got to check out the New York Premiere of the musical The Little Match Girl!
Based on the story by Hans Christian Anderson, with the book by Oxygen Media, lyrics and additional book by Jeff Edmond and music and musical direction by Alastair William King, The Little Match Girl is running for a limited engagement for two weeks.
Set to a contemporary score filled with soaring melodies, the story follows the Little Match Girl who is forced onto the streets to sell matches to support her family. Cold and alone, her imagination takes her away from the harsh realities and struggles of her daily life. Armed with match sticks and music, she finds the hope we all need.
“While modernizing this timeless classic, I intend to uplift the tragic story of the Little Match Girl, while staying true to the story and Victorian era costumes and scenery,” says director Ganakas. “Through magical realism, she conjures up images of her family in the most cherished times of her life, offering hope in her time of need. As theater offers escapism, so does the imagination captured by this little girl, and therefore we lose ourselves in her journey.”
