Lady of Copper the musical story of the Statue of Liberty and Immigration.
By Dana Leslie Goldstein, Jon Goldstein and Robert Bruce McIntosh
“Give me your tired, your poor
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”
When Miss Liberty arrives as a gift from France to the American people, her creator, Frederic Bartholdi, tells her that it is up to the Americans to build a base for her to stand on. She enlists the aid of Emma Lazarus, a young poet, and together they encounter a diverse collection of American citizens, from newly arrived immigrants and former slaves to famous newspaper mogul Joseph Pulitzer and President Grover Cleveland. Together, Emma and Miss Liberty compose the poem which will unite the people of America and help them to see the common dreams they share.
