A saga about a beautiful young Parisian songstress, whose fame and fortune could not fill the emptiness in her soul. Believing in her heart that the father she never knew might somehow, somewhere still be alive, she embarks on a search which leads to the city that bears her name. It is there she learns about the �American Way� and is confronted with greed, envy, and loss ... and it is there in that city, that she and we discover our real identities and the true meaning of family, fame, fate and faith. Brooklyn, The Musical opened to poor to average reviews. BEN BRANTLEY of the NEW YORK TIMES says �Cultural recycling of mostly discarded showbiz forms from several decades ago.� PETER SANTILLI of Associated Press says "Should charm audiences." HOWARD KISSEL of NEW YORK DAILY NEWS says �Entirely synthetic, its plot a series of showbiz clich�s, its music similarly generic.� (For tickets and more information click here)
