Nash Production Live in NYC this Weekend!

Ogden Nash's children's classic 'Custard the Dragon' will be performed live at the Algonquin Theater on East 24th on Sat 5/10 & 5/17 @ 11 & 2. Tickets are only $12 for adults and $8 for children. Could be a great way to spend an hour of your Saturday.

The Nash book was adapted into a Musical, with the help of the Kennedy Center for the Arts, by Brad Ross. Mr. Ross was inspired to put Nash's verse to music after thumbing through a copy of Custard the Dragon in a Manhattan book store. So much of Nash's verse about animals has been put to music, notably 'Carnival' . It's nice to see something new on this front. Please comment if you have a chance to see the show~!
