Inspired by actual events in 1959, ALABAMA STORY centers on a fearless, nononsense librarian, a vocal segregationist senator and an innocent children's book. BroadwayWorld has your first look at the production below!

In a parallel story, childhood friends Joshua and Lilly, a black man and white woman, reunite among the societal tensions of the times.

In 2000, Emily Wheelock Reed was cited for her work in 1959 Alabama by the American Library Association and received the Roll of Honor from the Freedom to Read Foundation for refusing to remove the children's book, "The Rabbits' Wedding" from the shelf. Pictured are Carmen Roman as Emily Wheelock Reed and Greg Vinkler as senator pushing for her dismissal, E.W. Higgins.
