Caroline, or Change by Tony Kushner

  • Cape Fear Regional Theatre 1209 Hay Street Fayetteville, NC, 28305 United States (map)

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.
