What we'll do
Starring Zahra Newman as Caroline
Mitchell Butel returns to Hayes Theatre Co to direct the Olivier Award-winning musical by Tony Kushner (Angels In America) and Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home, Violet) starring Zahra Newman (The Book of Mormon).
1963, Louisiana. The president is dead and America is on the verge of one of the greatest social movements of the 20th Century. The Gellman’s maid, single mother of four, Caroline, shares a special bond with eight-year old Noah, who is heartbroken after the death of his mother and his father’s remarriage.
Sneaking down to the basement laundry to spend time with Caroline and a range of fantastical, anthropomorphic characters, Noah will find his relationship with Caroline tested by an attempt to put more money into Caroline’s pocket, devised by his stepmother, Rose.
