A Powerful Tale Set at a Time Where Black and Irish Americans Walked Hand in Hand
New musical Paradise Square sees its world premiere early next year in San Francisco. With an award-winning and passionate cast and crew, this fresh musical not only entertains but depicts a story that happened over one hundred years ago with topics still relevant today.
Told alongside 19th century music and in between traditional Irish step-dancing and African Juba dancing, the story is set on a Manhattan block in 1863 where black and Irish Americans live and work in harmony before their lifestyles are challenged by the oncoming Civil War.
With whites enlisting and blacks being stopped from serving the country, will racial tensions finally start to come to the surface?
