About

The Kennedy Center presents Children of Eden in Concert, a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children, and faith. Freely based on the story of Genesis, Children of Eden in Concert is a frank, heartfelt, and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. Adam, Eve, Noah, and the "Father" who created them deal with the headstrong, cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: "the hardest part of love... is letting go."

Adapted as a semi-staged concert with book by John Caird and lyrics and music by Oscar and Grammy Award-winning composer Stephen Schwartz, Children of Eden in Concert is a one-time-only event in the Eisenhower Theater directed and choreographed by Tony Award nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge. Featuring an all-star Broadway cast, including Ron Bohmer (Ragtime) as Father, Ashley Brown (Mary Poppins) as Eve/Mama Noah, Tony nominee Charl Brown (Motown the Musical) as Adam/Father Noah, Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan (Newsies) as Cain/Japeth, Rebecca Naomi Jones (American Idiot) as Yonah, Ashley Spencer (Grease) as Aphra, Kay Trinidad (Allegiance) as Aysha, Adam Hyndman as Seth/Shem, and Josh Walden (Ragtime) as Abel/Ham, the concert staging is accompanied by the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra conducted by Brad Haak and National Broadway Chorus
