I have been working on this musical for nearly two years now. It is an important topic. It might be as important today as at any time over the past 100 years.  I’m happy to work with the talented Jennifer Schwed and Doug Bradshaw, my creative partners, on this.  Last week we performed songs from this show at the Library of Congress. Nancy Pelosi was the keynote speaker for this opening of the exhibit on women’s suffrage.  Here are two songs: one of celebration  and one of heartbreak.  Millicent Scarlett( pictured)  plays Ida B. Wells and is a force of nature. She is as compelling an actor/singer as I have ever worked with.  Hers is the second song:  “Will You Be Here for Me.”
