Inspired by the true story of a young woman in the Old West, The Ballad of Little Jo is a lively and compelling musical about one woman’s fearless journey to stake her claim on the American Dream.
After giving birth to a son, Josephine Monaghan makes the difficult decision to leave her son in the care of her sister and head out west in search of a new life; one she hopes will be able to support her and her son. But after a series of ill-fated encounters, Josephine finds herself stranded in a small mining town in Idaho. With an unwavering will to survive, she disguises herself as a man called “Jo” and quickly finds a job mining silver.
Things start looking up for Jo as she finds success as a man, but the dream of a better life starts to crack when news from back home in Boston reaches her. This accessible and appealing new musical weaves a landscape of passion, grit and beauty with an emotional impact that deftly probes the complexities of the human heart.
The music ranges from beautiful and lyrical ballads to true toe-tappers, all rooted in the ballads, hymns and drinking songs that form the palette of American folk music. We encourage you to join us at WaterTower Theatre on Friday, June 7th for a chance to witness this telling musical!
