Great musical with a very enjoyable performance. Some of the signing left me desiring for a little better sound, but hey, the kids did very well! Despite a few small mishaps, I really really had a good time and loved the acting and music.

More Information


The “disarmingly beautiful” (The New York Times) music of Rufus Wainwright takes center stage as A.C.T.’s Young Conservatory continues its exploration of modern composers in this theatrical tribute to the acclaimed singer-songwriter.

Shamed by his father’s arrest during the Panic of 1893, young New York socialite Josiah Matliff flees to Chicago. As he traverses the American railways, he meets other teenage runaways from the fringes of society who are escaping their own pasts. Wainwright’s haunting melodies and emotionally charged lyrics shape Beautiful Child into an original and unforgettable story of independence and awakening.
