About This Show

When We Get There, a New2NY presentation, is a new musical with book by Robert P. Young III and Richard Lasser and music and lyrics by Charlie Barnett. Black teenager Dawn inspires her mother Mary, Mary’s employer Rose, and Rose’s handyman Terrance to pile in Rose’s 1963 Buick Electra and drive to Selma to join Dr. Martin Luther King’s march. Green Book at the ready and hearts full of hope, the foursome heads south even as America remains hostile to its Black and Jewish citizens. Trouble will be encountered, secrets will be revealed, and a new understanding of what a family (and maybe a country) can be will be discovered.
