"A 24-hour music theater work about how communities are built as a result of being torn apart.  Consisting of over 246 songs–some original and many pre-existing popular songs (popular in the US from 1776 to the present day) – as well as over thirteen hours of original text, the work is a deconstruction, reimagining, reframing, and reenactment of 240 years of US history."
