Bridges: A New Musical explores the ongoing struggle for racial equality and gay rights in America through the eyes of a multiracial family from the years 1965 to 2008. In 1965 Selma, a young woman boldly joins a march to fight for her civil rights. Decades later, in 2008 Berkeley, another young woman faces her own battle for equality and LGBT rights. As their stories collide across time and distance, each must come to terms with who she is in the context of a changing and complicated world. Bridges: A New Musical is an empowering story that explores our country's past and present -- how far we've come, how far we have to go, and the bridges we must cross to get there.
