Dropping In On The Earth

This was the first show produced at Theater for the New City that I was the sole author of the sketches and songs. Children loved it, and it ran for 19 weeks. The Villager gave it a rave review, dedicating a spread to the show and calling it “Delightfully funny.” Some of the songs were quite heady, especially Albert & Al Bert, a song featuring Albert Einstein, Albert Schweitzer, and Bertrand Russell. Curiously, children listened to it with rapture. Other still-timely songs were Your Love Gave me Peace Inside, I Found Love Right Next to Me, and Mother Earth Sings the Blues.

You can see selected sketches from the show on the Sketches page.
