Touch of the Child

Schrijvers: Father Bob Curtis, Max Showalter, William Howe
Componist: Max Showalter

The story of Mary and Joseph, chosen to nurture and protect the world’s most precious gift, is theatrically extolled in this unique, extremely moving musical. The soaring score, romantic and with more than a little wit, illuminates the wonder and breadth of the Nativity while capturing its simpler, more evasive human aspects as well. Between the musical episodes appears a contemporary narrator who examines our relationship with faith, emphasizing the fragile humanity of all people. Originally conceived by Hollywood and Broadway veteran Max Showalter as a benefit performance, it was lauded by the likes of Mary Martin, Katharine Hepburn, Cole Porter, Ethel Merman, Irene Dunn, Ezra Stone and Richard Rodgers, all of whom believed this extraordinary musical should have a further life. TOUCH OF THE CHILD is a beautifully crafted musical portrayal of a family in which we can all see ourselves.
