This is the area premiere of a new musical based on the book by Mary Rodgers and movies
of the same title.
When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Freaky Friday is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic. By spending a day in each other’s shoes, Katherine and Ellie come to appreciate one another’s struggles, learn self-acceptance, and realize the immeasurable love and mutual respect that bond a mother and daughter.
Music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey (“Next to Normal,” “If/Then”) and book by Bridget Carpenter.
