JEANS! THE MUSICAL - Original Americana

Played in The Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts on June 2 & 3, at 2:00 PM (2018).

Jeans! was first written 12 years ago by Caryn Yacowitz and Diane Claerbout.The story is about the invention of jeans during the California Gold Rush.

I have written original tunes and new lyrics, and the book has been enhanced. It is a lively, clean fun piece of Americana with a Jewish twist. Both Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis, the innovators, were Jewish immigrants from Europe. It is historical fiction.

Jeans! is appropriate for actors aged 12-adult. It is about 75 minutes long and contains 12 songs. Jeremy Erman has written the wonderful musical arrangements.
