About the Show Music by Stephen Flaherty Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens Book by Terrence McNally Based on the E.L. Doctorow novel of the same name At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair and what it means to live in America. The winner of the 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations.
