Caroline, or Change An awe-inspiring gospel and blues musical
1963. In quiet Lake Charles, Louisiana, the destruction of a Confederate statue might just signal that change is in the air… But, whatever the progress of the civil rights movement, in the Gellman household things seem just the same – for now at least.
Eight year old Noah, heartbroken by the death of his mother and his father’s remarriage, sneaks down to the basement to spend time with the maid he idolizes, Caroline Thibodeaux: Caroline who runs everything. The basement is a fantastical place - even the appliances sing!
One of the most powerful female roles in musical theatre, Caroline, or Change is a true tour de force that will leave audiences breathless.
Featuring a virtuosic score by Jeanine Tesori (Shrek The Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Fun Home).
