Delightfully unusual and altogether special. The Secret Garden is a beautiful, affirming story about finding a language for our grief and learning how to bloom and live in hope again

Elegant and entrancing.

Tony Award Winner for Best Book of a Musical

The Secret Garden blossoms again for a new generation by the original creators, Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman and Grammy Award®-winning composer Lucy Simon. Follow young, orphaned Mary Lennox as she's sent from her home in India to live with her reclusive uncle on his haunted English country estate. Guided by an exceptionally beautiful score, Mary's unapologetic curiosity and the help of unlikely companions send her on a thrilling quest to untangle the pieces of her family's past and, most importantly—discover herself.
