19: THE MUSICAL
This episode of Big Blend Radio featuring Jennifer Schwed and Doug Bradshaw, creators of the groundbreaking new musical audiobook “19: The Musical.”

 

Through a combination of engaging dialogue and a variety of musical styles, the untold stories of the women’s suffrage movement are being brought to life in the groundbreaking new musical audiobook “19: The Musical” (March 2024, Through the 4th Wall) from creators Jennifer Schwed and Doug Bradshaw.

 

Delving into the contentious nature of the suffrage movement, the book highlights the marginalized roles of these women and focuses on the remarkable contributions of underappreciated figures such as Alice Paul, Carrie Chapman Catt, and Ida B. Wells. Spanning the life of Alice Paul’s entrance into the suffrage movement in the early 1900s through to the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920, the musical chronicles the sacrifices and setbacks faced by suffrage luminaries. The racially diverse cast brings a contemporary spin to historical events.

 

“19” joins musicals like “Hamilton,” “Assassins”’ and “Six” that look to examine, educate, and entertain through a historical lens. And despite being set a century ago, this book will resonate with modern audiences. Ultimately, this revolutionary audiobook about revolutionary women is a crucial addition to the ongoing fight for equality.
