Fresh from Ellis Island, a young mother and her son search for a new life and a sense of home as the 20th century beckons. The streets of Manhattan’s Lower East Side may not be paved with gold, but they echo with the music of opportunity, optimism and hope.
With a ravishing score by the songwriters of Wicked and Annie and the book-writer of Fiddler on the Roof, this is a sweeping saga of America’s immigrant past. Directed by Bronagh Lagan (Little Women, Putting It Together, Promises, Promises), this musical features a score celebrating the multicultural music which was filling the streets of New York in 1910.
“…an unforgettable, unique and vibrant treat..” ★★★★★ Jewish Telegraph
