Rose’s War, 2019

Book, Lyrics, Producer and Co-director: TODD ALLAN
Executive Producer, Choreography, Story Consultant and Co-Director: FRANCESCA HARPER


ROSE’S WAR is a 4-episode WWII-era TV musical about two singer-songwriters who dare to believe their interracial love story can have a happy ending.

Imagine LADY SINGS THE BLUES and ALL THAT JAZZ entwined with the intimacy of LA LA LAND fearlessly exposing racism’s insidious assault on love. Magical realism like it was artfully and intensely imagined in UNDERGROUND RAILROAD and THE WATCHMEN TV SERIES will also play a critical role in the storytelling.

The following Sizzle Reel is from one of ROSES WAR’s five performances in New York City at the Rave Theater Festival in 2019.
