Description

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.

Wainwright’s haunting melodies and emotionally charged lyrics shape Beautiful Child into an original and unforgettable story of independence and awakening.
