I’ll Take It!

From the composer of “Dreamgirls” comes the epic tale of Helen McGill, a spunky, middle-aged farmwoman who lives with her brother and longs for adventure. When the opportunity presents itself in the person of traveling bookseller Roger Mifflin, she buys his business right there on the spot! And so begins their romance and the journey of a lifetime. “I’ll Take It!” is inspired by and adapted from Christopher Morley’s 1917 novella “Parnassus On Wheels.”
