Claudine the Musical

In 1974, Claudine the film told the story of Claudine Price, a single black mother in Harlem trying to support her six children. To do so, Claudine works as a maid for wealthy families: every day she endures a taxing commute to the suburbs, where she eventually meets a charismatic, but irresponsible garbage man named Rupert. Romance blossoms between Claudine and Roop, who overcome their numerous hardships to walk away hand-in-hand as the credits roll.

Now, Claudine the Musical examines what came of Claudine’s characters in the forty-plus years since the film ended. The on-stage story stars Claudine—now 70 years old—Roop, and the film’s other characters, all of whom have taken different paths to reach where they are today. Claudine the Musical also ties up loose ends and reveals how Claudine’s family managed to stick together despite systemic opposition.

Customer Reviews

I had seen the movies some years ago so I didn't really know what to expect but I bought it for a Valentine's day for my fiancee & she loved it. She's a big fan of Claudine the movie & she was raving about the musical as well. Exceptional performances, especially from the guy that played Roop!!!!!
