The Players Theatre presents the New York debut of this song cycle conceived by Jaime Lozano as a tribute to the women in his life. More…
Inspired by his upbringing in a strong matriarchy, Lozano and nine female lyricists wrote songs that explore the unique challenges women face in society today on the journey to find happiness, love, and meaning in their lives. The themes of acceptance, hope, and friendship are universal reminders that no matter who we are or where we come from, our lives are all connected through the shared experience of womanhood.
