      Caroline, or Change Tickets

      Tony Kushner’s Caroline, or Change returns to Broadway for the first time since 2004. Starring Olivier Award winner Sharon D. Clarke as the eponymous Caroline Thibodeaux, this story of civil rights and personal upheaval will run at Studio 54 Theatre.

      After critically acclaimed runs at Chichester Festival Theatre, Hampstead Theatre and London’s West End, Michael Longhurst’s revival of Caroline, or Change marks the musical’s welcome return to Broadway, starring Olivier Award winner Sharon D. Clarke.

      Set in 1960s Louisiana, the musical follows house African American woman Caroline Thibodeaux, who works as a maid for a white Jewish family. Sporting a big imagination that sees the humdrum laundry room transformed into a spinning world of possibilities, Caroline is allowed to keep any loose change left in her employers’ clothes.

      This arrangement is soon disrupted when 8-year-old Noah leaves a $20 note in his pocket; during a time of huge social and political upheaval, Caroline discovers that even the smallest acts can spiral into moral dilemmas.

      Caroline, or Change on Broadway sees powerhouse theater legend Sharon D. Clarke reprise her acclaimed performance from the West End run. With a knockout 2019 in London, her recent credits include Death of a Salesman opposite Wendell Pierce and Blues in the Night.

      Further casting includes John Cariani (The Band's Visit), Caissie Levy (Frozen) and Tamika Lawrence (Come From Away).

      Caroline, or Change features a book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winner and Angels in America scribe Tony Kushner, with music from Tony Award winning composer Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home). Director Michael Longhurst is currently Artistic Director at London’s Donmar Warehouse, with extensive credits including Constellations on Broadway.

      Featuring a heady mix of Blues and classical inspired songs including “Noah Down the Stairs” and “Moon Change”, Caroline, or Change at Studio 54 Theatre signals the triumphant return of a uniquely beautiful musical.
