mackenzie and the missing boy
Mackenzie and the Missing Boy is an original radio musical, set in Great Depression-era New York. It’s a dark, funny, and thrilling cautionary melodrama about a reformed flapper with a Scheherazade-like knack for spinning elaborate stories, who wants nothing more than to win back her orphaned son from the clutches of her big sister, a pious Catholic nun. Meanwhile, the twisted hand of Fate places a reward notice in the newspaper for a missing boy, with a tempting sum that’s more than enough for a fresh start. To prove she is worthy of her son’s love and her sister’s trust, Mackenzie can’t help but tell one last tale: a little white lie with the darkest of consequences. Serialized in 7 Parts, Book Musical, Jazz Age, Medium to Large Cast (9 Principals + Ensemble).
