About This Event
Don’t Count Your Chickens Until They Cry Wolf
Aesop was never so charming as in Don’t Count Your Chickens Until They Cry Wolf,
a tour de force of Aesop’s world. This musical, with optional participation elements, involves every age in tuneful pleasure, making audiences into actors. Filled with ancient wisdom and today’s wit, clever lyrics and singable modern music, it is an irresistible attraction confected by Carol Lynn Pearson and J.A.C. Redford. Highlights include: the famous race of tortoise and hare (“You got to keep on keeping on”); a soft-shoe number by the fox (“Flatter them, and you’ll walk away with the cheese”); a rousing peasant dance in the bundle of sticks (“The trick is to stick together”); a chorus line of sheep (“If he’s got fleece but the wrong kind of nose, maybe he’s simply a wolf in sheep’s clothes”).
