In the summer of ’69, America is on the brink of change.

In the cities, crowds are protesting the Vietnam War. In the skies, Apollo 11 is speeding towards the first moon landing. And at a Catskills resort near Woodstock, NY, Jewish housewife Pearl Kantrowitz is busy balancing her rebellious teenage daughter, her overworked television repairman husband, and her daily mah-jongg game.

But when Pearl meets a free-thinking traveling salesman, she undergoes a unique transformation, awakening a newfound spirit of exploration and sexuality.

Based on the award-winning film, this stunning new musical fuses the spirit of ’60s folk and rock with today’s singer-songwriter sound, capturing a moving journey of self-discovery and the thrill of a generation in revolution.
