WBTT 20th Anniversary Season

Caroline, or Change; January 8 to February 16, 2020; Book and Lyrics by Tony Kushner; Music by Jeanine Tesori; Directed by Jim Weaver

Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe’s production of Caroline, or Change was the very first show to be staged in the Donelly Theatre, in the newly renovated Gerri Aaron & the Aaron Family Foundation Theatre Building.

Set in 1963 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, the Broadway musical Caroline, or Change tells the compelling story of Caroline, an African American maid, and her employers, the Gellman family. The score weaves blues, gospel and traditional Jewish klezmer music with lyrics by the playwright to tell the story of a changing America in a turbulent time. An intensely personal story by Tony/Pulitzer/Academy Award-winning writer Tony Kushner (Angels in America, Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln).
