Caroline, or Change
Books and Lyrics by Tony Kushner
Music by Jeanine Tesori
Set in small town Louisiana in November 1963, history comes alive in a Klezmer Blues Motown Score about a Jewish boy, his maid, and the cultural shifts rocking JFK and Martin Luther King Jr’s America. Starring Marla Louissaint, Leslie Gaines, Leo Miranda, Anarelis Ramirez and Michella Estevez, we hope Caroline, or Change will rock your world and your heart. (Bring tissues!)
