Rip! The Musical 

Book by Michael Berkeley & Ray Roderick
Music & Lyrics by Michael Berkeley
Rip! The Musical is a new musical based on Washington Irving's short story about the man who fell asleep in the Catskill Mountains for 20 years.  

A love song to the Hudson Valley, Michael Berkeley and Ray Roderick's Rip! The Musical celebrates family, home, and what's best about life. Tailor-made for the whole family in the great tradition of The Music Man and Fiddler On The Roof, Rip! The Musical brings new life to the tale of Rip Van Winkle through heartfelt, tuneful music, unbridled comedy, rousing dance, romance, and a little gnomish skullduggery.
