About the show

Transport Group presents a revitalized version of the musical tale of Margaret “Molly” Brown.

From the show:

This is Molly as she really was: vibrant, progressive, and ready to fight for the underdog as a champion of women’s rights, labor rights, and immigration reform. Transport Group’s production, starring Beth Malone, marks this show’s off-Broadway debut, and the first production in New York since its Broadway premiere in 1960.
