Cry For Us All

From the music writer of “Man of La Mancha”, Mitch Leigh, based on the critically acclaimed play “Hogan’s Goat”, we bring you “Cry For Us All”. A dramatic musical telling the stories of Irish immigrants living in Brooklyn in the late 1800’s. Somehow this hefty beast of a show was on Broadway at the same time as Hair and 1776, which is something to marvel at. Grab your tissues and tune in for a truly wonderful ride.


Featured Recording: Cry For Us All Original Broadway Cast Recording – Project 3 Total Sound Stereo - 1970

For the rights to produce the show, your best bet is to contact Mitch Leigh’s estate.
