“Well, ain’t no call for a boys’ band in this town…”

You got that right. We’re assembling an all female one. In this stripped-down staging of an American classic, we probe a question we’ve been asking since last season’s Men on Boats: who gets to tell our most foundational stories? What if the Music Man you’ve been waiting for all this time wasn’t a man at all…

Adjust the lens. Challenge the tradition. Hear it again for the first time.
