"Jeff Calhoun, who staged a surefire Big River here in 2005, and did well by Shenandoah a year later, again applies his eye and ear to a tuneful tale set in rural America.” –The Washington Post
“A full-throated and deeply emotional revival! Passionate lovers of musical theatre in all its forms should consider this show a must" -The Washingtonian
“A truly charming and meaningful new American musical!” –The New York Post
“Deeply stirring! As [Jeanine] Tesori has demonstrated in shows like Caroline, or Change, set in the South in the same period, she has an ear acutely attuned to American roots music. At the same time, she is an eloquent melodist.” –The New York Times
A touching story of love, hope and healing. In the early 1960s, a young woman travels across the South in search of a miracle. On her journey, she meets two young soldiers who help her learn about courage, beauty and her own self-worth. Jeanine Tesori (Caroline, or Change, Fun Home and Thoroughly Modern Millie) returns with a dynamic score of bluegrass, gospel, country and rock. Directed by Tony-nominated Jeff Calhoun (Broadway’s Newsies).
This performance will run approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes (including a 15-minute intermission). Recommended for ages 13 and up. Mature themes, sexual innuendo, some profanity and depictions of alcohol use.
