WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The year is 1963--civil rights and Kennedy--and in the Gellman household in Lake Charles, Louisiana, eight-year-old Noah struggles with the loss of his mother, while Caroline, the family's African American maid, struggles as a single Mom of four children. Through Caroline and Noah's friendship, playwright Tony Kushner and composer Jeanine Tesori explore thoughts on economic hardship and racial inequity that are relevant today as they were in the early 60s. Rich with humor, humanity and of course music--ranging from blues to gospel to traditional Jewish melodies--Caroline, or Change delivers a deep and uplifting message about change, in big ways and small.
