Three hard-luck Mississippi sisters are betrayed by their passions in this Southern Gothic classic—a zany, warm-hearted, and brilliantly imaginative tale of relationships run amok and dreams gone awry. In a hurricane of hilarity and hurt, Lenny’s turning 30, Meg’s fresh from rehab, and Babe’s out on bail, testing the boundaries of sisterhood in a world full of pitfalls and a town without pity.

Hope, good will, and fierce determination light the ragtag journey of Jewish immigrant Rebecca and her son from European persecution to new lives in the teeming, turn-of-the-century tenements of New York in this exhilarating musical from the creators of Fiddler on the Roof and Wicked. A soaring, tuneful score highlights this sweeping saga of dreams and disillusion, love lost and inspiration found, of the heart and soul of the American character.
