Caroline, or Change

Performance Dates

Set against the dramatic backdrop of political and social change in 1963 Louisiana, this TONY-nominated musical is riveting, moving, and awe inspiring. A virtuosic score blends blues, gospel and traditional Jewish klezmer music, to tell the story of the Gellman family and their African-American maid, Caroline, a hard-working single mother of four. As the story unfolds a fragile, yet beautiful friendship develops between Caroline and the young Gellman son, Noah. Featuring one of the most powerful female roles in musical theater, Caroline, or Change is a true tour de force that will leave audiences breathless.
