After two critically acclaimed London runs last year, Tony Kushner's (Angels in America) stunning musical Caroline, or Change comes to Broadway! With Sharon D. Clarke reprising her Olivier award-winning turn as the titular character, Caroline, or Change is set to be one of the most celebrated musicals of the season. Michael Longhurst returns to direct.
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'S CAROLINE, OR CHANGE ABOUT?
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's and Noah's relationship provides consequences that nobody expected.
