Our friend, the very talented Michelle Tattenbaum is directing a new musical at NYMF on a truly uplifting subject: the aging woman who, at the turn of the last century, takes a ragged bunch of mill children on a march for justice.
The show is written by Cheryl Kemeny, who has made music just about everywhere around the globe and currently runs a theater in Norwalk, CT. The wonderful Lynne Wintersteller plays Mother Jones (in a nice coincidence, Lynne was also in Hope Sings' founder Beth Blatt's show The Mistress Cycle, when it was at NYMF). Robin de Jesus of In The Heights fame also stars.
Tickets go on sale today - and the faster tickets for these scheduled performances sell out, the faster they'll add extra shows, which would be huge for everyone.
We'll be checking out a rehearsal soon - so stay tuned for more fun inside scoops on Mother Jones!
