Sheldon Allan "Shel" Silverstein was a decidedly American writer who has been translated into more than 30 languages, and whose books have sold over 20 million copies. He was the recipient of two Grammy Awards, as well as a Golden Globe and an Academy Award nomination. Silverstein created a remarkable body of work that spans the gamut from country and western songs to children's literature, from poetry to short plays. He also illustrated much of his own writing.
In "The World According to Shel Silverstein," we have selected judiciously from this body of work to craft a funny, silly, demented evening of entertainment. What is also revealed in the process is just how much Silverstein has contributed to the fabric of our lives. You may find yourself thinking more than once "I didn't know he wrote that..." This theatrical experience is a look into the mind of this eccentric and masterful storyteller through a combination of his short plays.
