Kennedy has just been assassinated though that doesn’t change the realities of Caroline’s world. A black maid to a Jewish family in Louisiana, Caroline is struggling to keep it all together, financially and emotionally, in her household and the household where she works. Noah, the 8-year-old son of the family she works for, is trying to make sense of things after his mother’s death and his father’s remarriage and looks to Caroline.

Olivier Award-winning actress Sharon D. Clarke once again takes the lead role. She is well known from her work on stage in shows like Guys and Dolls, The Amen Corner, and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom as well as her TV roles in shows like Holby City, EastEnders, and The Singing Detective.

Olivier Award winner for Best New Musical, Caroline, or Change comes from Tony Kushner author of the critically acclaimed Angels in America with a stunning musical score by Tony Award-winning composer and arranger Jeanine Tesori.

This personal story tells an intimate story that addresses wider questions about race, human rights and ideals. With a cast of heartfelt characters and household appliances, this musical will touch you.

i really enjoyed the show

Tracy Beer3rd March

Excellent show packed full of a variety of music performed by an outstanding cast. Shame the view was obscured by a huge padded rail. Seat really should have been marketed as restricted view.

Emotionally charged, beautiful performance. Tells the story of the oppression of blacks in the Southern States through amazing lyrics. The quality of the soul singers was sublime.

AKK27th February

The voices were great and the actors. Found the costumes ridiculous! The songs were not as smooth as I thought would be. The first part was such a drag but second part much better!

Sharon Layne24th February

Singing was amazing especially Sharon D. Clarke but was disappointed by the actual story. Would still recommend as a good night out.
