Canterbury Tales

Canterbury Tales
Chaucer's battle of the sexes is brought to life in this bawdy and romantic adaptation.

The universal, age-old battle between the sexes roars to musical life in Canterbury Tales, a rollicking adaptation of the lusty treatise on human nature and sexual politics that has illuminated scholars for hundreds of years. With its lilting score and colorful cast of characters, Chaucer's most well-known collections of stories comes to life in this rapturously entertaining retelling.

Led by their boisterous Host, a group of English commoners on their Spring pilgrimage to Canterbury share various stories of love and lust in an attempt to conclude whether it is man or woman who is the greater gender in relationships. The Miller, The Steward, The Wife of Bath and others all have tales to tell. Be it theft, infidelity or inexplicable blindness, they all come to life beautifully as each individual weaves his or her narrative.

The inspired libretto fills every moment with motion and its incredibly catchy score always entertains. In the hands of a talented creative team, this musical offers limitless potential for true artistry when it comes to scenic design and prop use. Canterbury Tales is an equal joy to perform, watch and produce.
