A WALK ON THE MOON arrives @ George Street Playhouse: The new musical takes off April 26.
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.
