In the final summer of the ’60s, America is aching for change. In the cities, crowds are protesting the Vietnam War. In the skies, Apollo 11 is speeding towards the first moon landing. And at a Catskills resort near Woodstock, NY, housewife Pearl Kantrowitz is busy balancing her rebellious teenage daughter, her overworked television repairman husband, and keeping her head in the daily mah-jongg game. But a chance meeting with a free-spirited traveling salesman awakens a newfound spirit of exploration and sexuality—and the realization of lost opportunities.
Based on the award-winning film, this stunning new musical unites the landscape of Borscht Belt comedy, the radical spirit of sixties revolution, and the electricity of two newfound romances to create a soaring and original rock and roll score.
