Living Lotus Project is proud to announce our
support of a challenging and heart-warming, new musical, On Delancey Street, currently in development.
ON DELANCEY STREET
A New Musical Book by Elsa Okon Rael, Shellen Lubin, and Matthew Gandolfo
Lyrics by Shellen Lubin
Music by Matthew Gandolfo Based on the book by Elsa Okon Rael / Illustrated by Marjorie Priceman
Based on the award-winning picture book by Elsa Okon Rael, What Zeesie Saw on Delancey Street, ON DELANCEY STREETis a new two-act musical exploring the conflict between autonomy and community through a precocious girl’s adventures on the Jewish Lower East Side of 1936. The story is told from the 1970s in the same locale by "current" residents protesting the loss of their community center, and so the cast is diverse and multi-cultural.
