A lesser known Andrew Lippa show, this musical is all about harnessing artistic creativity while your Dad wants you to play sports. So, basically the plot of every Disney Channel movie with the line, “This is your dream Dad, not mine!” But this one includes cartoon characters and dance numbers! (Come to think of it, this might just be a Disney Channel movie put onstage.) The projections of Jimmy’s drawings help to pull the audience in and then push them back out when they remember there may or may not be a man on the ceiling?
Written by Jules Feiffer, Music by Andrew Lippa, Scenic Design: David Korins (Hamilton, Hairspray LIVE), 2017. Directed by Jeffrey Seller (Lead Producer, Hamilton)
