WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
It's 1963 in Louisiana, and for Caroline Thibodeaux, the world is changing too fast. The president has just been shot and a fight for racial justice is sweeping the nation. Caroline, a black maid serving a Jewish household, desires a good night's rest and a decent life for her children. A melodious moon provides the commentary as her relationship with young Noah, the precocious son of her employers, becomes complicated by pocket change. With its rock, gospel, and klezmer score, this exquisite musical is a riveting statement addressed to a nation still gripped by inequality.
