About the Show

Written in 1909 by the renowned Hungarian playwright Ferenc Molnár, Liliom deals in life, death, and dilemmas of mythic proportions, as it follows a kitchen maid’s doomed love for the title character, a swaggering and charismatic carnival barker. American audiences will recognize Liliom as the play that Rodgers and Hammerstein adapted into their celebrated musical, Carousel. Flying Carpet adapts this rarely performed gem into a vibrant piece of physical theater that Creative Loafing describes as “Marvelous … with images of delicate loveliness.”
