THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES is an original disco musical for children, developed in collaboration with the Tony Award-winning American Repertory Theater and performed in rep with Inua Ellams' critically-acclaimed Barber Shop Chronicles. Combining disco, R&B, hip hop, and latin musical traditions with an urgent political allegory, this radical new approach to children's theater pulls the American tradition of holiday children's pantomime into a contemporary context.
