A Wrinkle in Time from Childsplay -- Only Three More Performances in Tempe

The setup: The only 20th-century book for young readers that's sold more copies than Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time is Charlotte's Web. Childsplay's current production of John Glore's stage version of Wrinkle is a great introduction to L'Engle's Time Quartet/Quintet/Murry-O'Keefe series for those who might not have read the book yet. It's also been hailed by existing fans as a faithful, respectful staging of the classic -- so bring them, too.
