the powerful musical

Tony Kushner's (Angels in America) and Jeanine Tesori's stunning musical Caroline, or Change is revived at the McCarter Theatre Center in 2024, with direction from Lili-Anne Brown. This highly virtuosic musical tells the story of eight-year-old Noah Gellman as he finds comfort from grieving his mother in the shape of Caroline, the Gellman's black maid. Against the backdrop of a sweltering 1960s Louisiana, Caroline, or Change provides an eloquent and inspiring portrait of America as it goes through historic social change.

What is the story?

Little Noah is heartbroken and angry, grieving his mother's death and upset at his father's re-marriage he escapes to the basement where his beloved maid, Caroline Thibodeaux works all day. Caroline's work is monotonous, tiresome and badly paid, but when the new Mrs. Gellman hatches a plan for Caroline to take some more money home, Caroline and Noah's relationship provides consequences that nobody expected.
