New York City
In the final summer of the 1960s, America is aching for change. In the cities, crowds are protesting the Vietnam War. In the skies, Apollo 11 is speeding toward man’s first encounter with the moon. And at a Catskills resort near Woodstock, housewife Pearl Kantrowitz is busy balancing the demands of her rebellious teenage daughter, her overworked television repairman husband, and keeping her head in the daily mah-jongg game. But a chance meeting with a free-spirited traveling salesman awakens a newfound spirit of exploration and sexuality — and the realization of lost opportunities. Based on the award-winning film of the same title, this stunning new musical weds the landscape of Borscht Belt comedy, the radical spirit of ’60s revolution, and the passion of two breathtaking love stories with a soaring and original rock ‘n’ roll score.
