Tantrum Theater continues its second season with the moving Tony Award-nominated musical, “Caroline, or Change,” running July 5–July 22. Professional theater artists from across the country, including multiple Broadway and national tour veterans, will bring to life playwright Tony Kushner’s (“Angels in America”) enthralling story and composer Jeanine Tesori’s (“Fun Home”) powerful score at the Abbey Theater in Dublin. “Change come fast and change come slow.” It’s 1963 in Louisiana, and for Caroline Thibodeaux the world is changing too fast.
