It’s 1963. Caroline is an African American laundress, a single mother serving a family in the Deep South. As the socio-political world violently spins into a new order, Caroline’s faith and relationships are tested, but through her sacrifices, the depth of human bonds endures. Kushner and Tesori’s Tony Award-nominated musical is an inspired amalgam of blues, gospel and traditional Jewish melodies.
