LEGENDALE is an original new musical by Andrea Daly (Music, Co-Story) & Jeff Bienstock (Words, Co-Story) that blends adventure, romance, and virtual reality, over a pop-infused score. The show had its World Premiere in Denmark in March 2017 at the Fredericia Theater, and American premiere at The Human Race Theatre Company in September 2017.
LEGENDALE is a contemporary musical comedy about the power of fantasy. The online game “Legendale” is Andy’s favorite way to escape and find adventure: he dreams of victory in the game’s tournament, but is stuck competing as a lowly milkmaid who crafts cheese. When the fantasy takes an unexpected turn, Andy and his avatar must both discover their inner warrior.
Songs orchestrated by Bruce Coughlin.
Demos produced by Andrea Daly and Fredericia Theatre.

“First and foremost, ‘Legendale’ is a wild ride. And absolutely amazingly well made.”
“…a show without any comparison; pulls the audience into a fascinating and poignant universe and impresses all in the theater.”

“Even though I am a stranger to the gaming world, ‘Legendale’ hits something in me. You do not have to be a gamer to understand Andy’s urge for adventure, or to envy his ability to actually find it.”
