A best musical nominee

Winner of the 2022 Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical for Joaquina Kalukango!

Experience the Broadway premiere of this galvanizing new musical that examines a true story from the history of racial division in this country. Set in New York in 1863, welcome to Paradise Square, a rambunctious local tavern where the clientele is made up of Free Blacks and newly arrived Irish Immigrants. United by both groups' outsider status in the city, harmony exists, with a shared culture emerging against the tumult of the encroaching Civil War.

With a score inspired by 19th-century music and choreography that weaves between traditional Irish step-dancing and African Juba dancing, Paradise Square is set to be a timely and dynamic production that asks us all what it really means to be an American.
