Music, Dance and More. An explosive new work that celebrates the 200-year legacy of the Sisters of Charity of New York. 1845 saw waves of immigrants from Ireland escaping hunger and disease flooding into America’s cities. New York struggled to absorb the sudden influx of hundreds of thousands of impoverished Irish, including a large number of orphaned children. Experience this huge hearted celebration through music, dance and stories of how the Sisters of Charity of New York rose to the occasion and left a timeless legacy of rebuilding lives.
