Lyrics by Douglas Lyons

New York City. 1863. Set amidst the tumult of the Civil War, Five Points chronicles the journeys of two men, Willie Lane, a young black performer at the famed Almack’s Dance Hall, and John Diamond, an Irish immigrant and former jig champion, as they risk everything in pursuit of the American Dream. Inspired by real events, this world premiere musical is about what happens when cultures collide. Yes, there is often chaos, but every once in a while, something extraordinary happens.
