This performance is a musical about musical. The creators are the same as heroes in the story. This staging is based on a book, written by H. Bell, while the songs were created by J. Bowen. The production tells us about its own process of creation.
This staging appeared during Theatre Festival in NY City, in autumn 2004. The first display took place at Manhattan Theatre Source. It happened in summer of the same year. That time, the producer was L. Camien. H. Bell, S. Blackwell, J. Bowen, and S. Fernandez were among original cast of actors. The first several performances anticipated its great premiere in NY.
