Armed with heart, humor and a handgun, Harriet Tubman proves anything is possible as she leads her people to freedom on the Underground Railroad. This spirited new musical brings to life the remarkable story of an American heroine — a woman they called Moses. See the show Broadway performers and New York audiences describe as “Beautiful” (Tony Award winner Lillias White), “Funny and historic, with some of the best music I’ve heard in a long time” (Grammy nominee David Jennings), and “Soul-stirring” (New York Musical Festival reviewer Brian Mendoza). A true American hero, Harriet Tubman will charm and inspire audiences of every kind with her courage, wit and vision.
