A musical based on the 1924 play Juno and the Paycock by Sean O'Casey, Juno chronicles the disintegration of an Irish family in Dublin in the early 1920s, during the confrontations between the Irish Republican Army and the British. Juno Boyle is the hardworking matriarch who struggles heroically to hold the family together in the face of war, betrayal, and her husband's drinking. Songs include "I Wish It So," "We're Alive" and "One Kind Word". This will be the first production since the original Broadway staging in 1959 to use the original orchestrations by Blitzstein, Hershey Kay and Robert Russell Bennett.
