July 25 – August 4
E.L. Doctorow’s novel comes to life in what many say is one of the greatest musicals ever written. We follow three families as they pursue their dreams in the early 20th century melting pot of New York City. Their stories weave together through their courage, compassion, and hope for a brighter future in America. This Tony award winning score includes “Back to Before,” “The Wheels of a Dream,” and “Your Daddy’s Son” just to name a few. This one is not to be missed!
Starring as Mother, Rachel Rhodes-Devey returns to the Mac-Haydn after her performance as Irene Molloy in Hello, Dolly! in 2017. Rachel made her Mac-Haydn debut at the age of 8, and since has performed in major New York City productions, national tours, and regional theatres across the country. She hopes the topics of this show stay in the hearts and conversations of audiences beyond the theatre doors.
