Based on the short story by F Scott Fitzgerald, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button tells the story of a man born in unusual circumstances.
Despite appearances, Benjamin is not nearing the end of his life – but instead, is just beginning it. He longs for freedom and adventure but is instead trapped inside a body in which he doesn’t belong, slowly growing younger.
Shut away from the world and dubbed a monster, Benjamin dreams of love. And just as he is about to resign himself to a life alone, Elowen Keene – a local girl – appears on the scene.
Their lives begin to play out in reverse, and when Benjamin gets called to war, time is not the only thing against them. Find out how their love story ends in the world premiere of this new musical.
