Madam! (World Premiere)
Music, Lyrics, and Book by Colin Healy - Directed by Sydnie Grosberg-Ronga
Eliza Haycraft is dying and hates men. She is owner of five brothels and the richest woman in the city of St. Louis who once empowered her employees by giving them the right to refuse service to anyone, but while the passage of The Social Evils Act of 1870 made her business legitimate, it also took away her right to say "no."
Madame is a new musical based loosely on real events that tells the story of her search for an heir to her sex empire while also taking a romp through first-wave feminism and sexism in America during Reconstruction told through the lens of Eliza's courtesans.
