The authors of Broadway’s Tuck Everlasting spin a romantic musical drama across the vast prairies of 19th century Nebraska. This sweet, longing tale of a New England socialite drawn to a rough-hewn Norwegian fiddler is told with wry humor, and sung to an engaging, western-tinged score.
Revival was commissioned by Playwrights Horizons, New York, New York and TheatreWorks Silicon Valley, California with funds provided by The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust.
