Space setting.

A challenging musical that dramatizes the life of Rose O'Neill, one of America's most beautiful and eccentric artists and the creator of, among other things, the Kewpie Doll. Through divorce, death and financial disaster Rose weathered the storms of life. It wasn't all bad. There was joy and harmony as well as the despair, among her tribulations. Though enormously wealthy during much of her life, Rose started with nothing and ended with nothing. But the journey and the lives that were touched, the fortunes that were changed, may never be able to be counted. This is a story for all ages and times. 2 hrs.
