Music by Bob Johnston and Nancy White Book by Jeff Hochhauser Lyrics by Nancy White, Bob Johnston and Jeff Hochhauser Based on the novels Anne of Avonlea and Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery Based on the sequel novels to Anne of Green Gables, this new Canadian musical continues the story of Anne Shirley's life. Set in the village of Avonlea and at Redmond College in Halifax, Anne and Gilbert follows Anne's journey to young adulthood and her romance with high school academic rival, Gilbert Blythe. Gilbert is in love with Anne, but she seems to be immune to his declarations of love. In the end, Anne realizes what everyone else already knows: that Gilbert is the love of her life. "Anne and Gilbert is a marvel." - The Toronto Star "When the curtain fell, I was disappointed to see it all end." - Variety "It is funny, charming, and musically and visually sensational. Writers, Jeff Hochauser, Nancy White, and Bob Johnstone...have succeeded in grand fashion. Refreshingly modern, Anne & Gilbert is magically artistic, and oh so romantic " - The Buzz "Heartwarming, tear-inducing, thoroughly satisfying" - The Halifax Chronicle Herald
