America’s Greatest Unknown Musical

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.  

“A winner, warm and witty. You are tempted to rise cheering.”
The Mercury News
