Nelly Don, The Musical!

In 1916, Nelly Don founded what grew to become the largest dress design and manufacturing company the world has ever seen. Using beautiful harmonies and playful lyrics, this new musical celebrates Nelly Don’s unlikely tale of romance, fashion, glamour, politics, gangsters and decades of gorgeous dresses. Nelly Don’s story shatters stereotypes and rejects barriers, deploying a colorful cast of historical KC characters that will delight and entertain.

This workshop concert-reading is part of MTH’s “New Musical Incubator” initiative that began in 2016 with the original musical HURRICANE. This event is free to the public; however, reservations are required.
