At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing, and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York City, three distinctly American tales are woven together—that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant, and a daring young Harlem musician—united by their courage, compassion, and belief in the promise of the future.

Written by award-winning songwriters Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, and noted playwright Terrence McNally.
