Dear Edwina, according to production notes, is "a heartwarming show about the joys and frustrations of growing up. The show’s spunky heroine, Edwina Spoonable, is an advice-giver extraordinaire. Told through a show-within-a-show format, Edwina shares her wisdom on everything from setting the table to making new friends through clever, catchy and poignant songs. Whether you're a kid living through it or an adult reminiscing about your childhood, everyone in the audience can identify with the characters and cheer their success."
The musical comedy opened in December 2008 and was nominated for two Drama Desk Awards. The show also played a limited run in December 2009.
The full creative team includes Steven G. Kennedy (choreography), Court Watson (scenic design), Kathryn Furst (lighting design), Theresa Squire (costume design) and Joe Kinosian (music director).
