We all have some sad stuff - maybe you have some right now, as you read this. What makes Michael most sad is thinking about his son Eddie, who died. 

 

Through an intimate, visual spectacle that includes dance, storytelling, animation and original music, 201 and Choreographer Andrea Walker bring Michael Rosen’s award-winning book to the stage.
