WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In 1970, a small musical with a big heart opened Off-Off-Broadway called Touch!-the journey of nine lost youth who ventured to the city during the colorful Woodstock era, taking to the road to find themselves. The show quickly rose to Off-Broadway where it ran for a full year. The New York Times called it 'Irresistible!' and reviews following were simply sensational. Veteran stage director Claude Brickell has returned to New York to mount the production and it promises to be bigger and better-that is in heart--if that is at all possible. Set during the turbulent hippie movement and the tragic Vietnam War era, the characters pour their hearts out on life's woes and its cherished moments. They bounce from one shunned town to another eventually ending up at the unfortunate Kent State rally where American youth were gunned down by our own National Guard for simply protesting the war. Capturing a turning point in the direction of our nation, the show and its young actor/singers are poised to remind each of us that wars go on but there is always hope. Touch! is destined to touch us all!
