A brand new musical adaptation of the bestselling novel.
At a snow-covered graveside in 1930s Germany, an illiterate girl steals an abandoned book – Liesel Meminger’s first act of book thievery.
As Liesel’s appetite for books grows, so does the Nazi regime and the shadow of death is never far away. When her foster family hides a Jewish boxer in their basement, he teaches Liesel the power of words and together they plant seeds of kindness in a world set against them.
A brand new musical adaptation based on Markus Zusak‘s global best-selling novel, The Book Thief is adapted by award-winning bestselling author Jodi Picoult (My Sister’s Keeper) and Timothy Allen McDonald (adaptor of Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka and James and the Giant Peach) with music and lyrics by Kate Anderson and Elyssa Samsel (Olaf’s Frozen Adventure).
