Composed and written by Davia Schendel, with musical direction by Mina Bloom, a duo of theatre makers from UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television, led by a stellar cast– this high energy musical gives audiences a look into the lives of several literary icons who rebelled against the conformity of 1950s America. Through their revolutionary poetic expression, these writers conveyed the ideals of a generation that longed for authenticity and self-exploration.
