Information

Show Credits: Book and Lyrics by Tony Kushner

Description:
Set in one of the most dramatic times in America's history, the TONY-nominated Caroline, Or Change is riveting, moving, and awe inspiring. Featuring a virtuosic score by Jeanine Tesori (Shrek The Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie), it blends blues, gospel and traditional Jewish melodies, creating a breathtaking medium for Kushner's provocative and personal story.

In 1963 the Gellman family and their African-American maid, Caroline, live in sleepy Lake Charles, Louisiana. Caroline is drifting through life as a single mother of four working in a service job to a white family. A fragile, yet beautiful friendship develops between the young Gellman son, Noah, and Caroline. Noah's stepmother Rose, unable to give Caroline a raise, tells Caroline that she may keep the money Noah leaves in his pockets. Caroline balks and refuses to take money from a child, but her own children desperately need food, clothing and shoes. Outside of the laundry room, some of the greatest social advancements the country has seen are being set in motion and change is knocking on the door.

Caroline, Or Change produces a valuable theatrical experience that continues to thrill audiences the world over. It is a story that must be shared and will touch hearts. It is a story that will open minds. It is a story that will change theatergoers for the better. Featuring one of the most powerful female roles in musical theatre Caroline, Or Change is a true tour de force that will leave audiences breathless.
