This sweeping musical portrait of early 20th century America tells the story of three families in the pursuit of the American Dream.
E.L. Doctrow’s novel was voted by Time Magazine as among the Top 100 Best novels of the last century, this sweeping musical portrait of early 20th century America tells the powerful tale of a white, upper-middle class family, an African American couple, and an Eastern European immigrant escaping to America with his daughter, as they all confront the timeless contradictions of wealth, poverty, freedom, prejudice, hope, and despair in pursuit of the American Dream. Unfolding through the fiery rhythms of Harlem and Tin Pan Alley, and the vibrant klezmer of the Lower East Side, this vivid and unforgettable Tony-winning score bursts onto the stage “on the wheels of a dream” in what will be an epic production from the director of GREAT’s Les Misérables.

Paul spring is a 25 year old singer / songwriter on Bad Run Records from Minneapolis. He is the great grandson of American poet / war hero Joyce Kilmer and impressionist painter Frederick Frieseke. He is the 9th of 10 kids and was raised by two English professors on a steady diet of classic literature and music. His debut album Towards a Center was produced by Homer Steinweiss, the beat behind hits by Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Amy Winehouse, St. Vincent, Bruno Mars and Charles Bradley. The album also features Leon Michels on horns (El Michels Affair, Lana Del Rey, Ray La Montagne).
“The compositions Paul dreams are not easy to pin down, but I consider them to be songs you can live your life by. In his songwriting we get his sense of the literary, but he also mingles in delightfully american culture, and his observations about the world. The singing and the musicianship is just first rate.” - Minnesota Public Radio
