The Lady or the Tiger: The Musical
by
Gerald P. Murphy

Based on the short story by Frank Stockton

The King has an interesting theory of justice. Anyone accused of a serious crime must choose between two doors. One door leads to a beautiful princess and instant marital bliss. The other door hides a tiger, and if chosen, a horrible death ensues. When young Cato has the presumption to woo the King's daughter, he is at the mercy of the King's justice. Will Cato choose the door which hides a beautiful rival of the princess, or will he instead choose the door of the tiger? This acting edition contains the piano/vocal score.
