from 43.00

South Carolina, 1964. Lily Owens, a restless white teenager, struggles with her merciless father and the haunting memory of her mother’s death. When Rosaleen, her black caregiver, is beaten and jailed for asserting her right to vote, Lily’s rebellious spirit is ignited. She and Rosaleen escape on an adventure where they are taken in by a trio of black beekeeping sisters. While Lily tries to unlock the secrets of her past, she and Rosaleen find solace in the mesmerizing world of bees and spirituality in this extraordinary tale of awakening, fellowship and healing.

Prior to the world premiere, two-time Pulitzer Prize–winning writer Lynn Nottage (Sweat), Tony and Grammy Award–winning composer Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening), two-time Tony–nominee and Drama Desk–winning lyricist Susan Birkenhead (Jelly’s Last Jam), and Tony-winning director Sam Gold (Fun Home) discuss their collaboration and creative process of turning Sue Monk Kidd’s best-selling novel into a musical. Cast members will also perform highlights.
