SHEL: A Historically Fictionalized Musical
–Book, Music, and Lyrics by Noah Kieserman
Based on the unusual life of poet and artist Shel Silverstein, Noah Kieserman’s SHEL is written entirely in Silverstein’s unique style of verse. The piece tells the tale of an artist for whom creativity is compulsory, whose fundamental need to create transcendent art takes a toll on those he loves most. With all original music, Kieserman takes the audience on a compelling and turbulent journey alongside Shel as he becomes the American icon beloved by millions across the world.
