Don’t miss your chance to experience this triumphant new production of a “candidate for the century’s greatest piece of musical theater” (Helen Shaw, New York Magazine/Vulture). Roundabout Theatre Company has brought the musical masterpiece, CAROLINE, OR CHANGE, back to Broadway for a very limited engagement, with a cast led by London’s three-time Olivier Award winner Sharon D Clarke, who delivers “a performance that people will talk about forever” (Theatermania).

This story of a Black woman working as a maid for a Jewish family in 1963 Louisiana—created by Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner and Tony Award® winner Jeanine Tesori—pulses with the urgency and passion that's shaping the world today. And with this new production, “CAROLINE, OR CHANGE places itself squarely at the forefront of the best in culture this city has to offer.” (Greg Evans, Variety). As David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter says, “Anyone who has missed the overwhelming emotional power of a great Broadway musical should look no further.”

“A Colossal creative smash.”
