Sewing the Dream Presented by the CreateTheater New Works Festival

With music in the tradition of the Great American Songbook, Sewing The Dream tells the story of Annie Moran,  a newly arrived Irish immigrant in 1800s NYC and how her life intertwines with that of scandal-ridden inventor Isaac Merritt Singer. Overcoming all odds and challenging accepted conventions of women’s place in society, Annie Moran and Isaac Singer forever change the world for women.
