"...a magical tapestry of music, story and life." — Joseph Harrison, Broadway World
New Orleans. 1928. As the Roaring Twenties dance their way down Bourbon Street, an orphan in search of home finds family in the most unexpected places. An exciting new musical twist on the Dickens classic.
Tony Nominee William F. Brown, author of The Wiz, joins forces with Grammy Award winning composer/lyricist Tena Clark – who has written for recording artists Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin and Natalie Cole, and composer Gary Prim on this heart wrenching musical of identity, belonging and family. Twist marks the Alliance Theatre return of legendary director and choreographer Debbie Allen (Fame), fresh from her acclaimed Broadway and Olivier Award winning West End productions of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.
