"On the final night of her reign as World Queen of the Cocoa Bean, the glamorous, often eccentric and hilariously unpredictable Cookie Conwell fulfills her lifelong dream of hosting 'The Chocolate Show!,' where she must choose her successor," press notes state. "Who will be the next to wear the solid chocolate crown? How will Cookie handle the transfer of power? And, oh yeah, is chocolate really bad for dogs?"
The production will feature choreography by Grady McLeod Bowman and music direction by Jeffrey Klitz.
