FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents "Dandelion: An Original Musical" live in concert on August 14th, 2019 at 9:30 PM. "Dandelion" is the story of high school senior Jane and her mother Delilah, and how the two are forced to confront profound questions of guilt, responsibility, and sacrifice as Jane must decide between attending college in pursuit of her lifelong dreams, or staying home to care for Delilah- who is locked in a desperate battle with severe mental illness and opioid addiction. Fresh off its second developmental reading with Ensemble-Atria in NYC, "Dandelion" promises to bring laughter and tears in this new musical of hope, grief, female power, and the promise of new possibility.
