THE HELLO GIRLS

NOV 13 - DEC 22, 2018

59E59 Theaters (59 East 59th, NYC)

From New York to Paris, from ragtime to jazz -- an ensemble of triple-threat actor-musicians chronicles the story of America's first women soldiers.  These intrepid heroines courageously served as bi-lingual telephone operators on the front lines, helping turn the tide of World War I.  They then returned home to fight a decades-long battle for equality and recognition, paving the way for future generations.  Celebrate the centennial of these groundbreaking women with an original musical created by Prospect Theater Company's critically-acclaimed founding artists.

"Mills' gift for infectious melodies and his singular brand of super-smart word play make him a realistic successor to the mantle of Stephen Sondheim." —Theatermania
