Prospect Theater Company presents
THE HELLO GIRLS
Music and lyrics by Peter Mills
Book by Peter Mills and Cara Reichel
Directed by Cara Reichel
Choreographed by Christine O'Grady
From New York to Paris, from ragtime to jazz-an ensemble of actor-musicians chronicles the story of America's first women soldiers in a new musical by Prospect Theater Company.
These intrepid heroines served as bilingual telephone operators on the front lines, helping turn the tide of World War I. They then returned home to fight a decades-long battle for equality and recognition, paving the way for future generations. The Hello Girls
celebrates the centennial of these groundbreaking women.
"Mills' gift for infectious melodies and his singular brand of super-smart word play
make him a realistic successor to the mantle of Stephen Sondheim.
