This fall, a musical masterpiece makes its long-awaited return to Broadway. For 13 weeks only, audiences have the chance to witness Sharon D Clarke’s Olivier Award-winning performance in CAROLINE, OR CHANGE.

Caroline Thibodeaux is a Black woman working as a maid for a Jewish family in 1963 Louisiana, as the civil rights movement is transforming America. Clarke brings this indelible heroine to "incandescent" life (Time Out London), in a production that launches to "the titanic dimensions of greatness" (The New York Times). From Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner and Tony Award winner Jeanine Tesori comes the show that pulses with the urgency and passion that's shaping the world today. The time for CAROLINE, OR CHANGE has arrived.

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