Music by John Gregor
Lyrics by John Gregor and Mark Loewenstern
The Changeling was written for and originally produced by Vital Theatre Company, New York City
"This fairytale is quite wonderful. Although it obviously draws inspiration from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, the story is unique and engaging. The plot turns out to be surprisingly unpredictable and profound in a way that is unusual for children's theatre. All of the characters are well-developed and yet simple enough for children to identify with and understand. While the dialog and lyrics do tend to the complex, children of all ages were held captivated throughout the entire production...Composer Gregor does a terrific job with the music. Some of the melodies are quite haunting, and much of the underscoring and transitional phrases are quite beautiful."
