Book & Additional Lyrics by Pamela Gray, Music & Lyrics by Paul Scott Goodman & AnnMarie Milazzo, Music Supervision by Andy Einhorn, Choreography by Josh Prince, Directed by Sheryl Kaller


Based on the Miramax and Village Roadshow Pictures/Punch Productions and Jay Cohen Motion Picture written by Pamela Gray,


Welcome to the iconic summer of 1969, when men walked on the moon, the Vietnam War raged on, Woodstock was going to change the world, and in upstate New York, one woman took a giant leap of her own. Every year, Pearl Kantrowitz packs up her family for another summer in the Catskills with the same friends, same mah-jongg games, and the same Blouse Man. But this summer is different. A free-spirited salesman sweeps through the Jewish bungalow colony and awakens Pearl to a version of herself she’d forgotten. While contending with a rebellious teenage daughter, a mother-in-law who knows too much, and a loving husband who is content with the status quo, Pearl must decide if she’s willing to break free from her predictable world to embrace the unknown. In the new musical A Walk on the Moon, one thing is certain: nothing will ever be the same.

A Walk on the Moon is sponsored by Sharon Karmazin. 


Only Onstage April 26 - May 21


Tickets Start at $25
