The frivolously fashionable Emperor and his opinionated daughter Sam just can’t get along. But with the help of some colorful characters and not-so-colorful threads, the two come to see themselves—and appreciate each other—for the first time. This new family musical based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale promises to show us that it’s not the clothes that make the person, it’s what’s inside that matters the most.
