The first Broadway revival of Caroline, or Change has already been given the imprimatur of greatness by London critics, who hailed this new production in its recent West End run. Now Roundabout Theatre Company presents it in New York, where the “incandescent” (Time Out London) Olivier Award winner Sharon D Clarke takes on the title role of Caroline Thibodeaux, a black housekeeper for a Jewish family in 1963 Louisiana. The script and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize and Tony winner Tony Kushner (Angels in America) and music by Tony winner Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home) vividly amplify Caroline’s complex inner life interacting with the radio, the moon, the washing machine and with Noah (Jonah Mussolino), the young son of her employers, with whom she forges an unusual friendship. Michael Longhurst (Constellations) directs.
