The Jazz Musical
By Eli Yamin and Clifford Carlson
Sarah, a seamstress at the Liberty Pants Factory and fellow suffragettes fight for the right to vote. They enlist the spirit of women to fight the forces of inequality. They are provoked by Wild Boars; a boisterous group of male chauvinists, but with the help of The Statute of Liberty overcome the obstacles against them.
