Based on the famous novella by Voltaire, the naive Candide sets off to explore the world, beset by an endless series of comedic disater. With musical highlights including " Glitter and Be Gay" and "Make Our Garden Grow" plus one of the best overtures ever composed for a Broadway musical, Candid leaves audiences humming hit tunes and affirms that the path to happiness is seldom straight!
