New Girl in Town - 2012 - Off-Broadway

NEW GIRL IN TOWN takes place in New York City, 1926. Along the sordid New York Waterfront teeming with drunks and merchant sailors, Anna, a young woman with a secret past, arrives searching for her father, old Chris Christopherson, Swedish Captain of a coal barge traveling between New York and Provincetown. On a foggy night, a sailor is pulled from the cold, dark waters of the Atlantic... and when the fog clears, Anna comes face to face with merchant sailor, Matt Burke, and both lives are changed forever.



Based on Eugene O'Neill's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, ANNA CHRISTIE, NEW GIRL IN TOWN is a passionate and joyous musical with music and lyrics by eight-time Tony Award-nominee Bob Merrill and book by Tony Award-winner George Abbott.
