Ford’s Begins Run of ‘Children of Eden’

Ford’s Theatre will launch its spring season tonight with the musical “Children of Eden.”

The play looks at the struggles in the relationships between parents and children, starting with the biblical family of Adam, Eve, Cain and Abel. It features music and lyrics by Tony nominee Stephen Schwartz (“Godspell,” “Pippin”) and is directed by Helen Hayes Award winner David Bell.

During the run of “Children of Eden,” Ford’s will offer seven “Opening Act” workshops that allow students to learn about theater production. They will be held April 15, 22 and 29 and May 6, 13, 20 and 27. For more information on these workshops, call (202) 638-2367.

“Children of Eden” runs through June 6 at Ford’s, 511 10th St. NW. Tickets are $29-$45 and can be purchased through or through the theater’s box office, (202) 434-4833.
