  • Overview

    “A work of astonishing breadth and beauty. The orchestrations…are among the best ever heard in the [Encores!] series, and are given their full due.” –The New York Times

    Don’t miss “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” (The New York Times) to see the ultimate cult musical! The Golden Apple is a whimsical and wildly ambitious show that introduced the classic torch song “Lazy Afternoon” and was hailed as a theatrical milestone in 1954. Inspired by the myths of The Iliad and The Odyssey, Jerome Moross and John Latouche’s musical conjures up the bygone days when pie-baking contests were cutthroat and lovers eloped in hot air balloons. Encores! is delighted to present The Golden Apple to a new generation.
