Kid Victory, a new musical by John Kander and Greg Pierce, follows the return of a teenage boy named Luke who was missing for several months
After a successful run of previews, Kid Victory, a new musical by John Kander and Greg Pierce, officially opens tonight, February 22nd at the Vineyard Theatre, Union Square’s home for bold theatre. In the musical, seventeen-year old Luke returns to his small Kansas town after a wrenching one-year absence. As his friendship grows with the town misfit, Emily, his parents realize that in order to truly find their son, they must confront some unnerving truths about his disappearance. Tickets are available now.
Four time Tony Award winner John Kander, with the late Fred Ebb, wrote the legendary musicals Chicago and Caberet. He and Greg Pierce collaborated on the musical The Landing presented in 2013 at Vineyard Theatre.
