“...Wacky and wise, melodic and mischievous... simultaneously silly and smart” with a “canny and clever libretto” by Susan J. Vitucci and “sprightly music” by renowned Broadway composer Henry Krieger.”

— New York Times

Music by Henry Krieger

Libretto and Puppets by Susan J. Vitucci

Love’s Fowlis a miniature grand opera about the life and adventures (mostly amorous) of La Pulcina Piccola (Chicken Little), a larger-than-life bird. The story begins with the familiar "sky-is-falling incident," when an acorn falls on her head and she leads her barnyard friends to tell the king of the impending disaster. It goes on to explore her eventful life including forays into politics and the theatre (where she triumphs as Richard III), and--always, always--romance. A grandly life-embracing and life-affirming character, La Pulcina Piccola's approach to life is: enjoy today, for the sky may fall tomorrow.
