Why This Show
This show is about coming together and connecting within a system that is trying to tear people apart. It shines a light on the tragedy and inhumanity of family separations while celebrating the resilience of community, the love of family and the triumph of the human spirit.
As artists, theatre makers and storytellers, we believe this is a timely and important story. As war, poverty, and climate change push more and more refugees into dangerous situations, the cruelty of family separations and policies that separate and isolate people must stop.
The music is heartstopping and beautiful. The story is engrossing, powerful and ultimately uplifting. The time to tell it is now.

Jessica, Diane and Gil have written a beautiful, unique, moving and important musical called OLIVIA O.
As a Broadway veteran and teacher of songwriting for many years, I can enthusiastically recommend their engrossing story and fabulous melodies in this exquisite musical.
You will embrace and be heartwarmed by their lead characters -- something so rarely found in a musical.
Acclaimed Broadway singer, songwriter and vocal coach for multiple shows, including "Lucky You," "Phantom of the Opera", "Me and My Shadows: Life with Judy Garland", "FAME." and Broadway's smash "THE COLOR PURPLE".
It is a beautiful and very moving new musical work and I look forward to the day I can be in the audience at its premiere performance.

Such good work. The lyrics, the story all come together. I read it and was immediately struck by how strong it was. It lit a fire in me! The story has so much heart, but it also has legs!
