book by Alfred Uhry

directed by Christina A. Coakley and Susan Marie Rhea
music directed by Jake Null
choreographed by Rachel Leigh Dolan

Extended to April 15!  

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
