About this show

Louisiana, 1963: in a nation reeling from the burgeoning Civil Rights movement and the Kennedy assassination, Caroline, a black maid, and Noah, the son of the Jewish family she works for, struggle to find an identity for their friendship. Through their intimate story, this beautiful new musical portrays the painful changing rhythms of a nation. Pulitzer Prize-winner Tony Kushner teams up with director George C. Wolfe and composer Jeanine Tesori in creating a story that addresses contemporary questions of culture, community, race and class through the lens and musical pulse of the 1960s. Winner of the 2004 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical, 2004 Drama Desk Award for composer Jeanine Tesori, and the 2004 Tony Award for Featured Actress in a Musical, Anika Noni Rose.
