See it before it goes to Broadway!
Empire is an original musical about those who bravely embodied the American spirit during the dark days of the Great Depression by building what was then the tallest structure in the world, the Empire State Building. When the roaring 20's collapsed into the reeling 30's, these industrialists, laborers and their families mortgaged all that was safe and reasonable for the dream of leaving their mark on New York City and the world.
This heartwarming musical comedy is a big fun night at the theater with toe-tapping songs, big dance numbers, danger, and a wild romantic ride to the top of the world.
