I’ll Take It!
From the composer of Dreamgirls and Side Show comes the epic tale of Helen McGill, a spunky, no-nonsense farmwoman who lives with her brother and longs for adventure. When the opportunity presents itself in the form of traveling bookseller Roger Mifflin, she buys his business right there on the spot, and so begins their romance and the journey of a lifetime. I’ll Take It! is inspired by and adapted from Christopher Morley’s 1917 novella Parnassus On Wheels, a heartfelt ode to love and literature.
