What an event! What a show! It's catchy and quirky. Tuneful and toe-tapping. Exuberant, unexpected and utterly endearing It's what happens when you take a beloved illustrator and children's author and combine her buoyant genius with some of the most talented people on the stage - presenting PHILADELPHIA CHICKENS! Created by Sandra Boynton - whose titles with Workman have over 4.7 million copies in print - PHILADELPHIA CHICKENS is a family musical in a book, bringing together a full-colour songbook of 17-1/2 illustrated story-poems with a full-length, fully orchestrated CD of original songs performed by an all star cast.
Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children's author, songwriter, producer, and director. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over sixty children's books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 70 million of her books have been sold, "mostly to friends and family," she says. She has also written (with Michael Ford) and produced six albums of renegade children's music. Three of her albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000 copies sold), and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, has gone Platinum (over 1 million copies sold). Boynton has also directed twelve music videos of her songs, including the award-winning "One Shoe Blues" starring B.B. King, "Alligator Stroll" starring Josh Turner, and "Tyrannosaurus Funk" (animation) sung by Samuel L. Jackson. She lives in rural New England, and her studio is in a barn with perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America. Michael Ford, Sandra Boynton's esteemed collaborator on Philadelphia Chickens and Rhinoceros Tap, is a classically trained composer and pianist, with a long detour in Progressive Rock performance. He and his family live down the road a spell from Sandy.
