The musical adaptation of Judith Viorst’s beloved children’s book centers on one miserable (but entertaining) day in the life of young Alexander who is so dismayed at waking up with gum in his hair, losing his yo-yo and having to wear railroad train pajamas that he wants to move to Australia. As bad days go, it’s tough to top Alexander’s. Audiences can sing along with Alexander’s misadventures as they, along with Alexander, discover that sometimes everyone has a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
