    This is the first fully-staged, full-length revival of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, a musical based on Betty Smith's iconic American novel of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times as "an inspiration" and "a star of the American musical theater," A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is the poignant story of the Nolan family, beginning in 1902 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. There's Johnny Nolan, a ne'er do well singer with dreams of Broadway glory, his wife, Katie, struggling to make a better life for her family, and twelve year-old Francie, an aspiring writer who relies on her imagination and her love of reading to get through hard times.
