COMING OF AGE IN KOREA

Genre: Musical
Book and lyrics by Fred Newman; Directed by Gabrielle L. Kurlander and Desmond Richardson

It's the end of the Korean War and three young GIs from New York City — one Latino, one Black and one Jewish — confront the harassment of the brass, the racism of the military and the brutality of the United States occupation of South Korea.

Coming of Age in Korea also features music by Fred Newman and Grammy-winning composer Annie Roboff that takes us on a journey through the "coming of age" of American popular music — blues, swing, doo-wop, rock and country. This Castillo classic will be directed by Gabrielle L. Kurlander, president and CEO of the All Stars Project, partnering with world-renowned dancer and choreographer Desmond Richardson, co-artistic director of Complexions Contemporary Ballet.
