Like Water for Chocolate is a musical adaptation of the best-selling 1989 novel by Mexican author Laura Esquivel. The film version of the book premiered at the 1993 Sundance Film Festival. It is a romantic tale of food, magic and passion. Making her musical theater debut, Mexican singer-songwriter Lila Downs wrote the songs with her longtime collaborator Paul Cohen, and the script is by Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-nominee Quiara Alegria Hudes.
Like Water for Chocolate will be a feast for all the senses, incorporating Mexican cooking and the power of food, the magical realism of Mexican folk tales, and both contemporary and ancient theater techniques. The show is being conceived collaboratively with co-directors Ted Sperling and Jonathan Butterell and designer Michael Levine, who bring their extensive backgrounds in innovative theater works (The Light in the Piazza, See What I Wanna See, Mnemonic) to this exciting new project. Bursting with beautiful and powerful music, choreography and stage
craft, the musical Like Water for Chocolate will bring this beloved book to life in three dimensions for a whole new audience.
