EVELYN & THE POLKA KING
The world’s first polka musical, written with Carl Finch (of Brave Combo fame) and Bob Lucas (one of Ohio’s songwriters extraordinaire). Evelyn, a wealthy Houston heiress, finds Hank Czerniak, her birth father and a defrocked Polka King. They put a band together and head out on a journey to find Evelyn’s birth mother.
Premiered at: Mad River Theatre Works. Subsequent productions: Actors Theatre Of Louisville, Steppenwolf, New American Theatre, Next Act and others. A screen version was commissioned by Amblin Entertainment.
A script, a score and performance rights can be obtained at Samuel French.
