Once on This Island

Producer Ken Davenport helped Sparky the Goat represent the show "Once on This Island."
Instead of getting depressed about how they don't write 'em like they used to, here's an even dozen shows from the era of Chicago up through the '00s that Encores! might consider in the future.
Two recent productions set in vastly different island cultures told unique coming-of-age stories with the help of tribal gods, the cadences of native music, some convenient magical realism, and a long-established, intensely local tradition of ethnic dance.
This two-man show that promises to condense all seven Harry Potter books into a 70 minute performance/parody does everything you would expect and less.
