“A triumph for the stage,” according to Time Magazine, this sweeping musical portrait of early twentieth century America tells the story of three families in the pursuit of the American Dream.  An award-winning creative team brought E.L. Doctorow’s distinguished novel to life on Broadway, winning universal acclaim, including four 1998 Tony Awards and five Drama Desk Awards.

Content Guide: This musical is a look at the early 20th century American experience through the eyes of upper-class whites, Harlem blacks and recent immigrants. An entertaining and moving work, it contains moments of realistic violence and racial slurs.
