Flying Feathers to have a Public Staged Reading

Flying Feathers, a new children’s musical, will have a staged reading at Theatre Building Chicago on February 22nd at 7:00 PM, as part of their Monday Night Musicals series.  Book by Joanne  Koch, Lyrics by Jennifer Stafford and Joanne Koch, Music by Ilya Levinson.

In this family musical, especially suitable for children 6-16, Duvid wants to play in his family’s klezmer band, like his older brother, Yossel.  But Yossel is only interested in winning  the hand of the lovely Rachel, who lives in  Chelm–a village famous for having more than its share of foolish people.  The two make a deal to help each other, and together they face funny adventures with the simple but big-hearted folks from Chelm.  Based on the folktales of Chelm, Flying Feathers has original music employing the klezmer idiom—lively and celebratory, filled with improvisation and laughter.  For tickets and more information, visit
