CL RECOMMENDS
CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: Based on a children’s book of the same title by Oliver Jeffers, this premiere of the musical “The Incredible Book Eating Boy” celebrates “the joy of reading and the insatiable appetite for knowledge in a hilarious family production,” the blurb says. Produced in collaboration with the High Museum of Art exhibition “Oliver Jeffers: 15 Years of Picturing Books,” this is the seventh in a series based on the work of children’s book authors and artists.The lead character, a lad named Henry, loves books but loathes the process of reading them. He discovers that devouring the tomes instead makes him increasingly smarter, but complications ensue. The cast features Alexander Chen as Henry, Rhyn McLemore as his mom and Brad Raymond as the dad; other roles are taken by India Tyree and Juan Carlos Unzueta. The work is directed by Jamil Jude of Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company and the playwright is Madhuri Shekar, who says, “The book is a really charming and beautifully written picture book about a boy who just wants to be one of the smart kids and doesn’t want to be left behind. The songs are fantastic; they are like earworms.” — KCM

From the venue:

Henry loves books.  But he hates reading them. Because books are so full of... words! Annoying, complicated, indecipherable words! Then one day he discovers the most amazing alternative to reading - eating the books whole. By chowing down, chomping, and literally digesting the contents of whole libraries, Henry gets smarter, and smarter and smarter... until his tummy doesn't feel so good. A story about literally biting off more than you can chew, this new musical celebrates the joy of reading and the insatiable appetite for knowledge.  Inspired by award-winning children's book author Oliver Jeffers' hilarious book, The Incredible Book Eating Boy  promises to leave you full!
