    Having read the book for Caroline or Change, Tony Kushner s musical about a black woman who works as a maid in a white Louisiana home in the 60 s, and then having heard the cast recording, and THEN having seen a local, incredibly well done full production of it, I have to say that I cannot give this artistic work its due by simply reviewing the text Sometimes, when reading the text of a play, and especially one that relies upon the written word for it power, as with Shakespeare or O Neill, th Having read the book for Caroline or Change, Tony Kushner s musical about a black woman who works as a maid in a white Louisiana home in the 60 s, and then having heard the cast recording, and THEN having seen a local, incredibly well done full production of it, I have to say that I cannot give this artistic work its due by simply reviewing the text Sometimes, when reading the text of a play, and especially one that relies upon the written word for it power, as with Shakespeare or O Neill, the language, the ideas and the emotion of the piece can be gleaned from a close reading With something such as Caroline or Change, so much of the impact of the work is in the construction of the musical element, and in the acting, and even in the set design and costuming, that the text is but the barest frame on which to judge the entire enterprise.That being said, you can see what Kushner is striving for here, and understand the structure of the story he is trying to tell Caroline Thibodeaux is a broken down woman who has four children, a husband who has run off, and a job toiling in the employ of a Jewish widower and his young son, Noah Caroline is seen as a mother figure to Noah, whereas her feelings towards him, while indulgent, arecomplicated and muted She knows she has her own children to tend to, which causes her the grief of knowing she is givingof her time to this white child than her own kids Complicating matters, Noah s father has remarried, and the new wife, Rose, is anguished by the fact that her stepson feels closer to the maid than to her For her part, Caroline makes do, taking pride in her inner strength and fortitude, while secretly tending her sorrow at the loss of the love of her life, who took off after his aimlessness and abuse of her led to her striking back in a fit of rage Things seem to be maintaining their equilibrium in the world of Caroline until Rose decides that any change Noah leaves in his pants pockets can be kept by Caroline when she finds it in the process of doing laundry The simplistic gesture by Rose, which she sees as a generous thoughtful gift, causes Caroline to see her position in the social and economic life of the Gellman household as evenfraught than it was previously, and helps bring about the change referred to in the freighted title of the play.The musical revolves around ideas of inequity and inequality in class, race, religious identity, and gender, and packs in quite a lot of very nuanced subtext among the text, as can be easily seen by a close reading of the book Kushner s compassionate depiction of his characters means that everyone comes in for both an affectionate, as well as pointed, examination of their attitudes and beliefs, and the characterizations are rich and melancholy even the allegorical characters, the Moon, the Radio, and the Bus, seem fully inhabited Of course, being a sung through musical, the language is economical and potent, and matches well with the song styles employed in the full production, from blues and rb to recitative and even klezmer music.To reiterate, this is a musical to be savored in a full production with fine actors with strong voices, an orchestra of technical virtuosity, and a stage designed to meld the allegorical phases of the moon with the banality of a concrete basement in humid Louisiana Though this book is a fine starting point for discovering this underrated Tony Kushner collaboration, it only fully blossoms when seen in its complete, breathtakingly soulful realization

    I saw this play with my best friend Betsy in 2004 before I moved to Albuquerque, NM I remember that I was amazed by the raw nature of this play I didn t even notice that it was through composed because it was so seamless and sit at the edge of your seat good acting singing etc Later, I was teaching Musical Theater at the Public Academy for the Performing Arts in Albuquerque, NM, and it was in the textbook I was looking at as THE example of through composed I finally read the play because I saw this play with my best friend Betsy in 2004 before I moved to Albuquerque, NM I remember that I was amazed by the raw nature of this play I didn t even notice that it was through composed because it was so seamless and sit at the edge of your seat good acting singing etc Later, I was teaching Musical Theater at the Public Academy for the Performing Arts in Albuquerque, NM, and it was in the textbook I was looking at as THE example of through composed I finally read the play because I had it in my Reading Series to choose our next season offerings I was so pleased that the students loved it as much as they did They seemed surprised by every technique it added and subtracted from the many tropes we use in live theater inanimate objects as characters that sing, cathartic 11 o clock numbers, and juxtaposing unlike things to show universality This play received the second most votes to be produced after ANGELS IN AMERICA MILLENNIUM APPROACHES Which, of course, makes me wonder whether or not Tony Kushner is our poet laureate for understanding American Identity I used to think it was Eugene O Neill, butthe students really responded to both of the Kushner plays I am, again, nervous about casting this, especially the young people roles, butterror is a wonderful playmate in theater, soI ll walk toward the stage every time, and not run away from the things that make me anxious

    This is the first Kushner I ve read, and I was a little disappointed As I m sure and my housemates have reassured me this is probably in large part due to the fact that I am reading a musical A show is completely and utterly different when you take it from the page and onto the stage evenso when it is a musical which relies upon music so heavily I really enjoyed the idea of the play, the issues it highlights and explores, and the arc of the story I absolutely loved the Channukah sce This is the first Kushner I ve read, and I was a little disappointed As I m sure and my housemates have reassured me this is probably in large part due to the fact that I am reading a musical A show is completely and utterly different when you take it from the page and onto the stage evenso when it is a musical which relies upon music so heavily I really enjoyed the idea of the play, the issues it highlights and explores, and the arc of the story I absolutely loved the Channukah scene and the Yiddish, Hebrew, and bits of Jewish culture and religion highlighted in that and sprinkled throughout the rest of the play My disappointment spread, mostly, from a feeling like there wasn t enough It felt truncated and half finished to me Was that purposefully done by Kushner Is he pointing out that these issues haven t been resolved and that there are millions of Carolines still struggling, suffering, and giving up I m not sure But I d really like to see the show performed and try and get a better grasp of it and feel for it

    I m not generally a fan of musicals, but Caroline, or Change is the very moving tale of an African American woman struggling to provide for her family by cleaning house for a white family at the height of the civil rights movement Kushner has a great facility for complicating matters that society tends to treat as pardon the pun black and white.
