With a winning mix of clever wit and surprising warmth, THE TUTOR tells a fresh, funny, contemporary tale of romance, art, and what it really takes to get into Princeton. When a struggling young novelist takes a job tutoring a sullen Manhattan girl, he thinks he's just out for quick cash. But when the characters in his novel start to come to life, and his teenage pupil begins to open up, his life takes a few surprising turns. This award-winning musical offers inventive, memorable music, vibrant characters, and way more laughs than taking the S.A.T.!
THE TUTOR is a three-time winner of the prestigious Richard Rodgers Award, which is administered by the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
