Spokane Children's Theatre: *The Nightingale*
A stage adaptation by Michael Nelson of Hans Christian Andersen's 1843 tale about an emperor who's enchanted by the song of a nightingale — until he's presented with an even more fascinating (to him) mechanical bird.
Well, when the emperor later lays dying, which bird do you think has more compassion for him — the one made out of feathers or the one made out of metal?
Director Sara Edlin-Marlowe has transferred the action to Japan to enable a Kabuki-style presentation.
