Based on the story of Genesis, Children of Eden is a frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. Adam, Eve, Noah and the "Father" who created them deal with the headstrong, cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: that "the hardest part of love... is letting go."

The reviews are in for "Children of Eden", and they are unanimous in their praise!  

"Am I on the Great White Way or am I really sitting in a theater in Bowie, MD? This is what I was thinking as I enjoyed 2nd Star Production’s opening night of Children of Eden..."

"The 2nd Star production does justice to Schwartz's brilliant, still-edgy score, and features a dynamic cast creating characters of biblical proportions.",0,749646.story

"This is a show the whole family will love"

"Children of Eden is full of surprises from Jane B. Wingard’s elaborate set design, Garrett Hyde’s spectacular lighting design, Linda Swann’s stunning costume designs, and the magnificent vocals from a dedicated cast. This production reveals a true collaborative effort and how wonderful live theatre truly is."
