TWIST, An American Musical

Now through July 17th, the Pasadena Playhouse presents TWIST, An American Musical. This heartwarming family musical is an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic Oliver Twist. Set in New Orleans on the eve of the Great Depression, TWIST tells the story of a young orphan boy born of a courageous white mother and an incredibly talented black father who navigates the colorful and sometimes rough waters of street life and racial intolerance in his quest to find his family and to find love. TWIST features music and lyrics by Grammy Award-winner Tena Clark, music by Gary Prim, and is set to be directed and choreographed by Golden Globe and multi-Emmy Award-winner Debbie Allen. The score for TWIST embraces the musical pulse of New Orleans in the 1920’s and is highlighted by a tapestry of soaring ballads, hot jazz, blues, gospel and tap-infused dance numbers that will take audiences along this magical journey.
