Atlantic Theatre Company: Ivy + Bean: The Musical
Produced by Maximum Entertainment and the Tony Award-winning Atlantic Theatre Company, Ivy + Bean: The Musical is based on the New York Times best-selling children’s books series by author Annie Barrows and illustrator Sophie Blackhall. The popular series explores the unexpected friendship between two very different second graders—the wild and goofy Bean and the quiet, contemplative Ivy. The original book was named an ALA Notable Children’s Book; Editor’s Choice, Best Books by Booklist; and the Best Children’s Books/Best Early Chapter Books by Kirkus Reviews. The latest title in the series ranked #3 on Amazon’s Best Books of 2013 list for ages 6–8.
