Direct from a smash-hit run on London’s West End, this new production of Tony Kushner (Angels in America) and Jeanine Tesori’s (Fun Home) explosive musical launches to “the titanic dimensions of greatness” (Ben Brantley, The New York Times). The “incandescent” (Holly Williams, Time Out London) Sharon D Clarke stars in an exhilarating, Olivier Award-winning performance as Caroline, an African-American maid whose world of 1963 Louisiana ripples with change both large and small. Erupting with transcendent songs and larger-than-life imagination, Caroline, or Change explores how, in times of great transformation, even the simplest acts shake the earth.
Caroline, or Change will feature the original creative team from London: Fly Davis (Set & Costume design), Jack Knowles (Lighting Design), Paul Arditti (Sound Design), Lilley, Nigel (Music Supervision), Chris Fenwick (Music Direction).
