I heard recently, probably on "All Things Considered" on public radio, that the bicentennial of Han Christian Anderson's birth will be held April 2-December 6, 2005. Here's a website:
Seems like there ought to be some good tie-ins to Striking 12?
I just recently realized that at least four musicals have been based on HCA's stories:
"Once Upon a Mattress"--The Princess and the Pea
"Honk"--The Ugly Duckling
"Striking 12"--The Little Match Girl
"Once on This Island"--Caribbean retelling of the Little Mermaid
Does anybody know of any others?
"Honk" and "Striking 12" were both featured in that festival of new musicals GL participated in in October. I think "Honk" was in the festival maybe two or three years ago.
