liberty-fb-header

Very excited to be seeing the opening performances of LIBERTY, A MONUMENTAL NEW MUSICAL. All the best to the cast, crew, and creatives: Dana Leslie Goldstein, Theresa Wozunk, Evan Pappas, Jeff Lodin, Vincent McCoy, Abigail Shapiro, Emma Rosenthal, Tina Stafford, Mingo Long, Mark Aldrich, Ryan Duncan, Brandon Andrus, Nick DeVito, and the many others who have put so much hard work into the project. Break a Leg!

A great quote from TheaterLife.com:

“If you can’t get tickets or haven’t got the money for Hamilton, you couldn’t do better than  to take the whole family to see Liberty, a modest but magnificent new musical that opens July 4 at 42West”
