GOLDSTEIN is Now Available for Licensing Through Steele Spring Stage Rights

Steele Spring Stage Rights, the licensing company that represents The Marvelous Wonderettes, has just acquired the licensing and theatrical performance rights to the off-Broadway musical about a family and its complicated history with a book by Charlie Schulman and music and lyrics by Michael Roberts.

Louis Goldstein has written a tell-all family memoir. The book is a best-seller. But is it true? History becomes personal in this uplifting and heartwarming, multi-generational exploration of the challenges and triumphs of an immigrant Jewish-American family. This original musical reminds us that families are complicated, the truth is never clear, and forgiveness is our best hope.

The Original Off-Broadway Cast Recording of Goldstein will be released on January 25th, 2019, but is available for pre-order NOW at Broadway Records and Amazon.

Charlie Schulman writes and produces plays and musicals. His collaboration with composer/lyricist/producer Michael Roberts includes The Fartiste (Best Musical: International/NYC Fringe, Productions: Off-Broadway and Charing Cross Theatre, London's West End) and Goldstein (Nominated for Best New Musical by The Off-Broadway Alliance.)
