Book and lyrics by Tony Kushner
Score by Jeanine Tesori
Set in one of the most dramatic times in America’s history, 1963 Louisiana, Caroline, or Change is a provocative story of political change, social change, and pocket change. The Tony-nominated musical is riveting, moving, and awe-inspiring.
The story follows a black maid working for a middle-class Jewish family. When a small amount of money goes missing, buried tensions threaten to rip two families – and the struggling Caroline – apart. Featuring a virtuosic score by Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home and Thoroughly Modern Millie), it blends blues, gospel, and traditional Jewish melodies, into a magical, show-stopping musical masterpiece loosely based on Tony Kushner’s (Angels in America) provocative and personal story.
