America’s Finest Composers
Original songs are written by eminent American composers of stage, film and television: Oscar & 5-time Emmy winner Bill Conti (“Rocky”), 2-time Oscar winner Al Kasha (“The Morning After” from “The Poseidon Adventure”; “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers”), Emmy nominee Doug Katsaros (music director for “Footloose”), Tony & Emmy winner Don Pippin (“Oliver!”), and Oscar & 2-time Grammy winner David Shire (“Baby,” “Big”).

“Believe only in Love.”
The musical is inspired by a true story about a woman who is deeply in love with her equally tender husband, a doctor. But as their happy marriage blossoms, a calling propels her to make a heartrending decision – remain with her beloved or sacrifice everything in search of happiness for all humanity.
In what seems a destined journey, she embarks on travels through India and the Himalayas, encountering adventure, danger, and surprises along the way.
The unforgettable story is sure to bring tears, laughter, and poignant memories for audiences of all backgrounds.
