From the creators of From the Mountaintop: The Edgar Tufts Story and The Denim King: The Moses Cone Story, this new musical brings to life the work of iconic American artist, Norman Rockwell. Creating more than 4,000 pieces of art in his lifetime, Rockwell captured the essence of America with each paint stroke, from Rosie the Riveter to The Four Freedoms, with his paintings and illustrations reflecting America as we wish it to be. This musical, with a lush score and heart-warming book, explores the life and art of America’s artist, Norman Rockwell.
