Enjoy this concert-style, reunion performance featuring many of the cast members from our 2017 production! Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant, and a daring, young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion, and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair... and what it means to live in America.
