Off Broadway Musical — 

Visionary and flamboyant editor George Davis transforms a dilapidated Brooklyn boarding house into a bohemian commune for the leading lights of 1940s New York. Residents include novelist Carson McCullers, composer Benjamin Britten, poet W.H. Auden, and the infamous Gypsy Rose Lee. The luminaries of 7 Middagh Street form a tumultuous and remarkable makeshift family, and search for love, inspiration, and refuge from the looming war in Europe.

Inspired by true events, this powerful and funny new musical marks the first commission of The Public’s Musical Theater Initiative and is presented in association with Long Wharf Theatre. The exciting score, written by up-and-coming composer Gabriel Kahane, mixes elements of classical operetta, jazz, and musical comedy with modern folk-pop.

“Not since Sunday in the Park with George does a musical so dazzlingly explore the role of art, artists and the 'real' world in which they live.” – Frank Rizzo, The Hartford Courant
