What is The Prince of Egypt about?
The all-new stage musical The Prince of Egypt comes with music and lyrics from Stephen Schwartz (Wicked) and a book from Philip LaZebnik (Mulan, Pocahontas). There are 10 new songs from Schwartz as well as 5 of his original songs from the DreamWorks Animation film on which the musical is based. This widely acclaimed story takes us back to Ancient Egypt where we follow the journey of two young men, who were raised as brothers at the top of the pecking order, but a secret from the past arises, dividing them. One is to be Pharaoh, and the other seeks out his true people and rises up to lead them to freedom. They both face a destiny that will see a change in history forever!
