THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH JR follows the exceptional tale of Milo, Tock, and a certain magic tollbooth is brought splendidly to life on stage in The Phantom Tollbooth TYA. Adapted from Norton Juster’s beloved children’s book, this inventive musical features a melodious score by Arnold Black and witty lyrics full of wordplay by Pulitzer Prize and three-time-Tony-winner, Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof, She Loves Me).
Even surrounded by dozens of toys, Milo is bored. Nothing interests him at all. The Phantom Tollbooth comes to the rescue! Transported to the Land of Wisdom, Milo is thrust into adventure when told Princesses Rhyme and Reason need rescuing to bring peace between two kings. They are divided over which is more important: words or numbers. Knee-deep in danger, language, and math along the way, Milo learns everything has a purpose. Upon his return home, he realizes there is never a reason to be bored in a world full of so many things to discover. @ firstname.lastname@example.org
