This revival of Jeanine Tesori and Tony Kushner’s powerful and inspirational musical was originally slated to begin previews on March 13th, 2020 and open on April 7th, 2020. However, the plug got pulled on the whole production as Live Theater was forced to abruptly shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The company did NOT even reach their invited industrial dress rehearsal. Now, they’re getting a 2nd chance.
Who is excited?!!
