Children's Letters to God synopsis
"Children's Letters to God" Synopsis - Broadway musicalDespite its religious name and very implying cover (you may name it official poster), the musical is not religion as such and not discuss topics related to it. All the emphasis of attention moved to five adolescents of visually between 8 and 15 years, who ask the questions, ordinary and natural for teenagers during the active growing and fast socialization, which exactly fall on the period of adolescence.
All acting persons are children, teenagers. They discuss with each other everyday issues and sometimes ask open-ended questions that can be addressed externally, or, if you’d like, to God, as some higher, omniscient being or Force who can give an answer or just to listen to you silently but wisely. They raise such aspects of growing-up as a rivalry between brothers/sisters, first love, relationships with parents (especially when they divorced), the reflection about his non-athleticism, hobbies and how to survive their losses.
