Twenty-six years ago, playwright and native Texan Louise Richardson conceived a delightful and inspiring coming-of-age tale that has at last come to the stage in this dynamic new production. It is the story of Johanna and Darcy, two talented, passionate, and idealistic nineteen-year old folk singers from Houston, whose dream it is to come to New York City in 1959 to escape their difficult pasts and change the world with their music.

It is also the story of Sidney Feldman, a former blacklisted comic from the post-WW II generation and Greenwich Village coffee house owner who ends up getting more than he bargained for when he gives the girls their first break. Spanning over twenty years and set against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement, the Cold War, the nuclear arms race, and the war in Vietnam, CHANTEUSE follows their evocative, musically-rich, volatile, poignant, and ultimately triumphant journey as they face success and fame, betrayal, heartbreak, and the truth about themselves, their relationships, and the nature of love.
