The Crossing and the Ten Crucial Days - Book and Lyrics

 

We've celebrated the gods of the Revolution, so lets turn now our attention towards the Revolution's minor players, without whose efforts none of our heroes deeds would ever been known. 

Written alongside the brilliant composer, John Allen Watts and under advisement of eminent historian Larry Kidder, The Crossing is a celebration of the individual men and women of the Revolution and their unsung efforts.

The Crossing is a kaleidoscope, farmers and nurses; slaves and wordsmiths; freedmen and women of resolute will all lending their shoulders to a cause for reasons as diverse as the fledgling nation herself. .

December, 1776. We follow James, a brash Pennsylvanian farmer disillusioned with the war after months and months of defeat at the hands of the British when a chance encounter with Thomas Paine changes everything for James, his comrades, and indeed for America leading to the fateful events beginning on Christmas night, 1776 on the banks of the frigid Delaware River.

The first 29-Hour production of The Crossing, directed by Gabriel Vega Weissmanwas performed at  Washington Crossing Historic Park auditorium mere feet from where The Continental Army made their legendary crossing.
