MUSICAL. This humorous version of the story of Adam and Eve will dazzle audiences with its wit, amusing characters, and delightful songs. One day, Adam confides in God that while he enjoys the bountiful plants and animals in Eden―except the unicorn, which really isn’t working out―he feels something is missing. To appease Adam, God creates Eve to serve as his companion. Soon the messenger angel Rafael arrives and delivers a singing God-o-gram to Adam and Eve, warning them that Satan is on the lam in hell and may pay them a visit. Disguised as a snake, Satan arrives in Eden and easily dupes Eve into eating an apple even though God told Adam and Eve that they should never eat the apples but instead stick to other fruits and vegetables like parsnips and persimmons. As they are cast out of Eden, the couple stops bickering and blaming each other for the Fall and discovers “how beautiful to walk from Eden hand in hand.” Inspired by John Milton’s “Paradise Lost,” this easy-to-stage, non-denominational musical features 15 original songs.
