Caroline, or Change

Set against the tumultuous backdrop of the Kennedy assassination and the Civil Rights Movement, CAROLINE, OR CHANGE uses fantasy and reality to explore a story about ordinary people facing extraordinary change. With a musical score that blends blues, soul, gospel, classical and traditional Jewish melodies, this ‘modern masterpiece’ is a timely story of change for our socially-conscious world. 

Featuring “Canada’s Queen of R&B” Jully Black in her musical theatre debut as Caroline,  internationally renowned Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman as The Moon and an all-star Canadian cast, CAROLINE, OR CHANGE will play the world-renowned Winter Garden Theatre, January 30 – February 15, 2020.
