New Living Newspaper

New Living Newspaper was an updated version of the 1930's musical "Living Newspaper". The production opened around March 4, 1992 at the Ensemble Studio Theater, home to many of Shel Silverstein's one-act plays in the past. The original had music and lyrics by one Ray Leslee, but for this new production Silverstein contributed lyrics as well as music, written in collaboration with Andrew Howard. The show was reviewed by Frank Rich of the New York Times Theater Review but it does not go into any further detail about Silverstein's contribution to the revue. However, if time warrants, I will post the review in its entirety.
