Universal and timeless, Delia Ephron's How to Eat Like a Child is a delightful revisiting of the joys -- and tricky ploys -- of childhood. This musical romp through the joys and sorrows of being a child offers 23 lessons in such subjects as how to beg for a dog, how to torture your sister, how to act after being sent to your room, and how to laugh hysterically. The pace is fast, the tone subversive, and the recognition instant by audiences young and old. Based on the book, the musical version began its life as an NBC primetime special starring Dick Van Dyke. It was an immediate hit and has enjoyed thousands of productions all over the the world where kids smuggle their least favorite vegetables to the garbage instead of eating them.
