Adapted from Charles Dickens’ favorite novel, “David Copperfield the Musical” follows the tribulations of David from his happy early years through the dark days of his mother’s second marriage and beyond. David endures the sadism of his step-father Murdstone, the depredations of the villainous schoolmaster Creakle, and the mind-numbing routine of the London sweatshop to which he is consigned after the death of his mother. Along the way, he is befriended by unforgettable characters including the sea-faring Peggotty family, the monosyllabic coachman Barkis, the grandiloquent Mr. Micawber and his only living relative, the formidable Aunt Betsey.
