Opportunity to License Musical Directly from the Creators
19: The Musical is a big, powerful, roller-coaster of a show that reveals the dynamic and little-known story of Alice Paul, Ida B. Wells, and the other suffragists who fought the dangerous crusade to get women the right to vote--the 19th Amendment.
The rousing story of these fearless women is brought to life through a compelling mix of jazz, gospel, and spoken-word, as well as more traditional musical style standards.
19 wants to do for Alice Paul and the Suffragists what Hamilton did for Alexander Hamilton and the Founding Fathers; take them out of the academic history books and introduce them as real, multi-dimensional people.
This underdog saga of women fighting for their rights is an unflinching, intersectional story of gender and race that leaves audiences moved and inspired. Here, Ida B. Wells reflects on deadly consequences in, “Damned if I Do,” the Suffragists endure imprisonment in, “Jailed for Freedom,” and Alice Paul goes toe-to-toe with President Woodrow Wilson in, “The Hypocrite’s Tango.”
19 has been developed through 30+ public performance workshops, spanning two years at dozens of venues. This effort culminated in a three-night premiere of the full show in November 2019, at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, in Washington, D.C.
And now, 19 is available for licensing to theaters, universities and institutions looking to stage this important and timely piece of lost American history.
19, featuring compelling yet complex women singing soaring solos and stirring ensemble numbers, is more than a musical--it is part of a movement.
