Luna Park (book) tells the story of the first modern amusement park at Coney Island, dubbed "America's Playground."  The park had a stunning rise and fall at the turn-of-the-century that mirrored the lives of its troubled creators, architect Frederic Thompson and entrepreneur Elmer "Skip" Dundy. The show (music and lyrics by Hyeyoung Kim and Michael Cooper) was presented in three rehearsed readings November 1st-3rd, 2016, in London, as part of the "From Page to Stage" Festival.

 

 

 

 

The "From Page to Stage" Festival also featured the European premier of litte-known-writer Lin-Manuel Miranda's "21 Chump Street."  Needless to say, he was honored to share the bill! For more info on the festival, visit Aria Entertainment here.
"Luna Park" was originally commissioned by SUNY Cortland, and directed by Kevin Halpin.
