Stay tuned for more of Broadway Direct’s conversations with Tony nominees, and all things Tony Awards here.

Water for Elephants features a book by three-time Tony Award nominee Rick Elice (Jersey Boys, Peter and the Starcatcher), a soaring score by the acclaimed PigPen Theatre Co. (The Tale of Despereaux), and direction by Tony Award nominee Jessica Stone (Kimberly Akimbo). The new musical unites innovative stagecraft with the very best of Broadway talent in an authentic and deeply moving new musical that invites us all to give ourselves to the unknown.
