Spin - The Audiobook Musical: A witty musical re-imagining of Grimm´s fairy tale, Rumpelstiltskin, created by Broadway veterans, narrated by Jim Dale, and featuring a cast of Broadway musical stars. The story takes place in a Nice Little Kingdom, and ignites when a foolish miller brags that his daughter, Jane, can spin straw into gold.

A fun, fractured fairy tale for the entire family.

This delightfully musical story theater tale strives to answer the questions: who was Rumpelstiltskin? Did he spin and if he spun was it actually straw he was spinning? Was the king a good king or a bad king? Was the girl´s father a chronic fibber or was he just a victim of his time and socioeconomic standing? Was the girl an innocent dupe and were her broken promises acceptable considering the circumstances? These seemingly complex questions will most likely go unanswered but all – young and old alike – will have a marvelous time reading, listening, and singing along to this wonderfully fractured tale by Parents’ Gold Award Winning musical artist and author Keith Torgan. Hilariously performed on Audible by the author and flutist Barbara Siesel. This is a tale of musically comic proportions about the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
