Description Summer of the Seventeenth Doll takes one of our theatre icons and, without slavishly retelling the story, respectfully translates the play's character and essence into a new and lovingly crafted piece of outstanding music theatre ... a perfectly chosen cast and the emotional heights the opera reached at its climax. Clever set in the form of a doll's house.
