Jack's life is tough. He and his mother have no money, no food, a run-down house, and an opera-singing cow that won't give milk. Just as he's about to be sent off to an orphanage, Jack meets a mysterious stranger, who gives him three magic beans, along with an even more mysterious piece of advice that sets Jack climbing up a beanstalk and into the clouds. There, he meets a Giant who would do anything to change places with him. With the help of a wise-cracking hen and a self-absorbed cow, can all of their problems be solved?

Published Reviews

"Sokoloff has the uncanny ability to grab onto a difficult question in a young person's life, lock eyes with the monster, never let go, never condescend, and make us all laugh at the same time!"

Wendy Dann, Associate Artistic Director, Hangar Theatre (Ithaca, NY)

"Sokoloff has the uncanny ability to grab onto a difficult question in a young person's life, lock eyes with the monster, never let go, never condescend, and make us all laugh at the same time! Jack and the Beanstalk explores what it means when a child needs to take charge, and how it feels to grow up a whole lot sooner than expected. Sokoloff approaches the sensitive, important subject with candor, tact, wacky humor and some very real solutions."

Wendy Dann, Associate Artistic Director, Hangar Theatre (Ithaca, NY)
