Hereville is a new music with book by Robby Sandler with Jess Kaufman; music by Lizzie Hagstedt; and lyrics by Robby Sandler. Based on the award-winning graphic novels by Barry Deutsch, it follows Mirka, an eleven-year old girl in a small Orthodox Jewish town in somewhere suburbia.
At its essence, Hereville is a love story between a stepmother and stepchild….that happens to feature a meteor clone of our protagonist, a little witchcraft, ghosts on the moon (not spooky ghosts!), and lots of kugel.
