Eden in Babylon is a traditional musical in the spirit of Rodgers & Hammerstein, but with a progressive score and topical themes. In exploring the effects of homelessness on the youth of 21st Century America, it portrays the hugeness of the ever-widening gap between the super-rich and the grossly impoverished in today’s society. Though meant to raise awareness, Eden in Babylon also adheres to the time-honored maxims that once distinguished American musical theatre from other genres of the Performing Arts. While no one would call the show “unrealistic,” it still winds up on the happy note of presenting life not as it is — but as it ought to be.
