CJ is reluctantly staying with his Nana, a veritable force of nature who lives in a world considerably different than his own. Knowing CJ is used to being plugged in to his phone and tablet all the time, Nana takes him on a bus ride that's loud, gritty and offbeat – guiding her grandson to travel a little close to his roots and see that things are not always what they seem.

LAST STOP ON MARKET STREET is a vibrant story about connecting to your community. It's is adapted for the stage by veteran playwright Cheryl L. West from the New York Times bestselling and Newbery Medal-winning picture book by Matt de la Peña and illustrator Christian Robinson. The musical features a spectacular, spirited score by Motown legend Lamont Dozier and his son Paris Ray Dozier. It was originally commissioned and produced by Chicago Children's Theatre and the Children's Theatre Company.

"Like Hamilton for kids," hails the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The Chicago Sun Times says, "Last Stop on Market Street is what children's theater should be. It does not talk down to its audience. It is burgeoning with wonder. If you are a kid, you'll giggle yourself silly. If you were once a kid, you just might remember what that felt like."

The production is 70 minutes with no intermission and recommended for ages 5 and up.
