With jazzy, upbeat, and Gospel-inspired music by Stephen Schwartz (known best for Godspell and Wicked), Children of Eden is a two-act musical that tells the story of the first nine chapters in the book of Genesis with a contemporary flair. Act I tells the story of the creation of the world, along with Adam and Eve and Cain and Abel. Act II deals with Noah and the Great Flood. It's a joyous and inspirational musical about the relationship between parents and children, acceptance of others, the weight of our decisions, and the ultimate lessons that the hardest part of love is letting go.
