Jeans! The Musical

Jeans! was written about 12 years ago by Caryn Yacowitz and Diane Claerbout. I wrote the lyrics to tunes in the public domain. The story is about the invention of jeans during the California Gold Rush.

I have written original music and new lyrics, and the book got some tweaking. It is a 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 did the musical arrangements.
