About Minnie Quay

Based on an American folk legend, this haunting new musical tells of Minnie Quay, a young girl in a Michigan port town who falls in love with a sailor against her parents' wishes. With fate and circumstance tearing them apart, Minnie is forced to decide what is the ultimate price she is willing to pay for love.
