Welcome to Re-Creating Magic: Krazy Kat and The Toy Box

This site and blog will chronicle the creative process and creation of three works scheduled to premiere during "An Evening of Enchantment" at the Berlind Theater in April.  This project is a collaboration between Princeton University's Department of Music and the Lewis Center for the Arts' Program in Theater, and Program in Dance.
