Synopsis

The Apple Tree consists of three one-act musicals about men, women and struggles with temptation. The first, "The Diary Of Adam And Eve," is based on a book by Mark Twain. The second, The Lady Or The Tiger?," explores the fickleness of love in a rock and roll fable set in a mythical barbarian kingdom. The last Act, "Passionella" is based on Jules Feiffer's story about a chimney sweep whose dreams of being a "glamorous movie star" nearly sabotage her one chance for true love. *Actors are often double or tripple cast.
