Musical Adaptation of Chelsea Clinton's SHE PERSISTED Sets Off-Broadway Premiere

Atlantic for Kids will present She Persisted, The Musical, a New York premiere musical with script and lyrics by Adam Tobin, music by Deborah Wicks La Puma, adapted from the book written by Chelsea Clinton and illustrated by Alexandra Boiger, published by Philomel Books.

She Persisted, The Musical is a rallying cry for all of those tiny feminists, mini activists and little ones ready to take on the world, One Dream at a time! Recommended for children 5+ but welcomes kids of all ages.

Casting will be announced at a later date.
