The Secret Garden
Book & Lyrics by Marsha Norman

Based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett
A Co-Production with D.C.’s Shakespeare Theatre Company
A story of great love and great loss, great sadness and great joy.
A hauntingly beautiful musical, The Secret Garden is the celebrated tale of a young orphaned girl, sent to live with a reclusive uncle in a crumbling mansion overrun with spirits of the past. Called “smart and sensitive” and “blessedly grownup” with “a yearning magical pulse” by the Washington Post, this fantastical tale features stunning sets and costumes, a gorgeous score and rich, lush story-telling. This dark and mysterious gothic thriller brings to exuberant life a saga of deception, grief, jealousy, love and ultimately, rebirth.
With sun, water, earth and love, any seed can bloom…
