About Unknown Soldier

ELLEN

Sometimes you see a picture / Or hear a song / Or read a letter / And a person that’s forgotten comes alive for a moment. / They can tell you a story.

Cleaning out her grandmother’s home, Ellen Rabinowitz discovers a mysterious photograph of an anonymous soldier, tucked away in a box of keepsakes. And so begins Daniel Goldstein and Michael Friedman’s sweeping, elegiac musical about a woman’s journey to unearth the secrets buried in her family’s past. Spanning three generations, "Unknown Soldier" unravels a delicate tangle of family lore, as Ellen chases the extraordinary story that unlocks her history — and charts her future.
