Inspired by historical events, this family musical chronicles how the Statue of Liberty became an immigration icon and symbol of freedom. More…
Lady Liberty was not always a beloved national landmark. She originally arrived on our shores in the middle of a heated immigration debate and a terrible recession, and political forces quickly aligned to deport her. With a strong resolve and a mighty spirit, she battles to gain acceptance and a place in our society. In this family musical, best for ages 8 and up, the Statue of Liberty comes to life as a wide-eyed teenage girl.
