What to See in December

Jeanne Cooper | November 19, 2018 | Story Galleries and Performance

Not every Silicon Valley incubator involves typical business—sometimes it’s show business. Take Tuck Everlasting, the Broadway musical making its regional premiere at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley. Composer Chris Miller and lyricist Nathan Tysen created two songs for the show—hailed by The New York Times in 2016 as “warm- spirited and piercingly touching”—while part of the 2010 TheatreWorks’ Writers Retreat in Menlo Park. Based on Natalie Babbitt’s bestselling book, the family-friendly show focuses on an 11-year-old girl given the choice of eternal youth. “The show is very dear to us, as is TheatreWorks, and it seems in a way like a homecoming,” notes Miller, adding audiences “will have to guess” which two songs have local origins. The new production at Lucie Stern Theatre also features sets by noted local designer Joe Ragey. Tickets $35-$60; a $500 VIP Champagne brunch on Dec. 16 includes tickets and a backstage tour for four. Nov. 28-Dec. 23, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto, 650.463.1960,
