Secondhand Lions

Music and Lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner
Book by Rupert Holmes

In 1960s Texas, an introverted boy named Walter is left on the doorstep of his great-uncles, Hub and Garth McCann — two old eccentric curmudgeons with a mysterious past and a fortune stashed away. An unlikely family is born when the McCann brothers recount exotic tales of adventure and romance from their youth, inspiring Walter to become a man, while Walter in turn reignites their lust for life.

With a book by Tony Award winner Rupert Holmes, Secondhand Lions had its world premiere at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre in a production directed by Scott Schwartz, choreographed by Joshua Bergasse, and produced by Warner Brothers Theatre Ventures.
