BOOK BY SAMUEL BOOKS NEGIN
28 years after the multi-million dollar art theft at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, a senior security guard meets a man who looks rather familiar. He soon learns that the man - the subject of one of the stolen paintings, himself – has spent nearly 30 years recovering all-but-one of the missing pieces; the one they both love most. Could she be hiding in the one place he never thought to look?
This short musical with book by Samuel Books Negin and songs by award-winning composer/lyricist, Kit Goldstein Grant, makes its world premiere as part of the New York Winterfest.
