But she doesn’t shut up, she sings out, and her discovery of her voice leads to a change which impacts everybody round her, and beyond.

When I first came to this materials, I thought I knew what it was going to be, however Werfel’s novel continually stunned me with its radical turns. I strove to convey that radical energy to our telling. The source material bursts with humanity, cosmic mystery, and humor. Werfel’s writing conjures up me not only by means of the magnificent story he told, but also in the compassionate but unsentimental tone he provides which makes area for believers and non-believers alike.

Sophia Caruso’s performance is fascinating and revolutionary.
