MTC’s Mellon National Playwright in Residence Lauren Gunderson returns, partnering with award-winning composer/lyricist duo Bree Lowdermilk and Kait Kerrigan to present a new version of their groundbreaking musical fresh from its world premiere last Spring at Arizona Theatre Company (Sean Daniels, Artistic Director and Geri Wright, Managing Director). JUSTICE features the "firsts" of the Supreme Court Justices. It is 1993, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg has just joined the United States Supreme Court; the first and only other woman Justice, Sandra Day O’Connor, is ready to welcome her and get to work. Joining their ranks to complete the picture of the first four female judges in history are Sonia Sotomayor and Ketanji Brown Jackson. In an intimate, epic new musical built with sweeping songs, urgent conversations about equality, and truly human heroines, we come to know these iconic Justices at the height of their power. We discover how they inspire, challenge, and propel the next generation of changemakers and trailblazers in American jurisprudence. They confront each other about equal justice under the law, strategy, civil rights, husbands, kids, dreams, and sorrows, all while setting a new course for our country and the world.
