Direct from a smash-hit run on London's West End, this new production of Tony Kushner (Angels in America) and Jeanine Tesori’s (Fun Home) explosive musical launches to “the titanic dimensions of greatness" (Ben Brantley, The New York Times).

In a triumphant, Olivier Award-winning performance, the “incandescent” (Holly Williams, Time Out London) Sharon D Clarke stars as a Black maid working for a Jewish family, as their colliding worlds in 1963 Louisiana ripple with change, both large and small.

Erupting with transcendent songs and larger-than-life imagination, Caroline, or Change explores how, in times of great transformation, even the simplest acts can shake the earth.

Running time: 2 hours and 25 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission.
