WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In the musical, set in Alabama during the Great Depression, 8-year-old George Nookin is possessed by the vengeful spirit of Lou, a jaded hoofer who was murdered by Lou's Vaudeville partner, Chicken Mosely. George's parents, Arthur and Louise, are torn asunder by George's astonishing new ability to sing and dance, schlepping across the country as Lou seduces them into believing that exploiting George's new found talent is the family's ticket on the train out of hard times. Wong plays George, Lou, Mosely, Arthur, Louise, as well as George's Grandmother, a floozie hotel clerk, and a host of other supporting characters.
