  • The 2019 season opens with the World Premiere of a brand new romantic screwball musical comedy, Love and Other Fables . Set on the Greek island of Samos in 600 B. C., Love and Other Fables follows the early life of Aesop, the not-yet-famous slave, as he creates the “fable,” persistently woos the headstrong girl of his dreams, enters into a battle of wits with the King of Egypt and changes the course of history. Written by John McMahon and Jay Jeffries, the original concert version garnered a review from The Chicago Sun-Times , which said “[ Love and Other Fables ] shows every sign of becoming a surprise hot property. The three songs sampled certainly win my prize for the most astonishing, whip-smart lyrics, with one rapid-fire rhyming line after another perfectly attuned to its properly pronounced syllables.” The production at Theatre By The Sea will be the first fully-staged production of the musical, as it continues its journey to Broadway.
