Boston Music Theatre Project
Joan of Arc is an intimate but powerful musical which breaks through legend to bring us face to face with a living, breathing, teen-aged girl. Set during the last year of Joan's life, the musical explores her strength, her courage, her visions and voices, and her final dark night of the soul. "I never asked anything of my voices save at the last, the salvation of my soul."
