The chapter documents Bradbury’s collaboration with composer-lyricist Jimmy Webb on a new 1989 musical stage version of Dandelion Wine, and the subsequent series of performances at Kermit Christman’s Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival Theater in Florida. “Time Flies,” Webb’s new song for the Florida production, would later be recorded by Linda Ronstadt, Rosemary Clooney, and Michael Feinstein. The chapter concludes with a summary of the third and fourth seasons of Ray Bradbury Theater and the successful negotiations to clear rights (with the NBC Chronicles mini-series producers and Disney Studios) to film episodes based on The Martian Chronicles and “The Black Ferris,” the original source tale for Something Wicked This Way Comes.
