Event Description

The real life story of one woman who surprised everyone. This soaring musical about the American West is inspired by the real-life-story of Josephine Monaghan- a young woman from Boston who, in the late 19th century, made a new life in an Idaho mining town disguised as a man called "Jo." Writing in The New Yorker, John Lahr called The Ballad of Little Jo, "the real thing-the best piece of musical theater storytelling I've seen in a decade."

Music by Mike Reid Lyrics by Sarah Schlesinger Book by Sarah Schlesinger, Mike Reid, and John Dias Based on the film The Ballad of Little Jo by Maggie Greenwald Directed by John Dias
