As seen in Time Out Kids! The Brooklyn Lyceum and Mainspring Collective bring you...'The Emperor's New...Monsters!' The 4th episode of our epic children's theatrical series, Monster Literature. Written and conceived by Daniel John Kelley When the evil wizard Zorlan Morlan steals Hans Christian Anderson's classic story ?The Emperor's New Clothes?, it's up to Benjy Bleeglehorn and her dashing sidekick Bravo Kirkwood to save the day! But can Benjy do it alone? This time, Zorlan has trapped Bravo inside the story by appealing to his one weakness: his desire to be awesome. Now Bravo is the Emperor, surrounded by new monster "friends" who promise to make him an awesome coat that only awesome people can see. It's up to Benjy to show Bravo that there is no coat, that the monsters aren't his friends, and that's okay to be who you are, no matter what anyone says!
