“Harold & Maude : The Musical”
Music by Joseph Thalken
Book & Lyrics by Tom Jones
Based on the story by Colin Higgins

Based on the 1971 cult film, Harold & Maude: The Musical is perhaps one of the sweetest yet most unconventional love stories - profoundly moving and filled with delectable humor. Harold, a 19 year-old fascinated by death and all its trappings, meets Maude, a vivacious and eccentric 79-year-old widow with hobbies that border on the felonious. With her unbreakable spirit, she becomes a beacon in the life of this self-destructive rich boy, and their unlikely romance awakens Harold to the beauty, possibility and meaning of life. It's a love story, a sentimental black comedy, a ludicrous tear-jerker, and a grisly social satire wrapped up into one life-affirming musical
