BILLY, GOAT, GRUFF: The Musical is coming to NYC just in time for Spring Break! This imaginative re-telling of a classic tale follows the story of three goat brothers: Billy, Goat & Gruff. Trying to find their way in an increasingly dangerous world, the brothers must look within themselves to find a way to survive with only the memory of their mother & the spirit of their ancestors as guidance. Join them as they traverse treacherous terrain, struggle with what is right & battle fears of a nasty troll, to reach a land that grants them their wish: to live & play together in the Pasture of Paradise. Get out of the cold, have some fun & come be a part of this coming-of-age story & pursuit of the unknown, where it is always spring.
