The tragic, true story of the trial and lynching of a Jewish man wrongly accused of murder.  A rich and intricate score by Jason Robert Brown, and a book by Alfred Uhry that delves fearlessly into the complexities of early 20th century social relationships in the South.  A musical of profound depth and beauty.

“Brilliant yet terrifying, filled with complex themes elucidated with the clarity of a white-hot spotlight aimed at center stage… one of the most thrilling evenings of a theater-lover's lifetime.” – Christian Science Monitor
