* World Premiere

A Thurber Carnival (1966)
During its New York run the New York Journal American critic said, “The Thurber world is a heady one…In sum, it’s a joyously rewarding evening with a great humorist.” A sort of a revue, but not exactly, it is, like everything else by the great humorist, unclassifiable. Time Magazine probably hit it on the head when they stated, it’s an “animated anthology” and we add – with music?
