Cast of ROW, Photography by Joseph OMalley and R. Masseo Davis


July 16 - August 14 | The Clark Art Institute
2021 Season

Book by Daniel Goldstein
Music and Lyrics by Dawn Landes
Directed by Tyne Rafaeli
Inspired by A Pearl in the Storm by Tori Murden McClure

The Clark’s reflecting pool becomes the stage for this uplifting world premiere musical that interrogates the resilience, fear, and ambition inside one individual (Grace McLean) as she aims to be the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic. Inspired by A Pearl in the Storm by Tori Murden McClure, with a book by Daniel Goldstein, music and lyrics by Dawn Landes, and directed by Tyne Rafaeli, Row exposes you to the elements endured by an extraordinary woman undeterred by the odds.

The digital program for this production can be seen here.

Program and casting are subject to change.

All tickets are general admission and $90 each, inclusive of fees.

Please Note

This production will be performed outdoors at the Clark Art Institute (chairs will be provided and sanitized between performances). Patrons are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather and the elements, e.g. apply bug repellent before you arrive; wear visors, hats, and/or sunglasses for protection from the sun; bring a light sweater for cooler evenings and a rain poncho in the event of rain (umbrellas cannot be used during the performance).

The performance includes strobe lights.

Rain Policy: This production will perform in light rain, and the Festival may postpone the curtain time slightly so that the show is able to perform. If the Festival must cancel a performance before the show begins, then the Box Office will reach out to patrons directly within 48 hours and try to exchange them into another performance (subject to ticket availability). If the Box Office is unable to accommodate an exchange, patrons will be offered an opportunity to donate their tickets back to the Festival, or if requested, receive a refund. If a performance is stopped and cancelled due to weather after 45 minutes, then the performance will be considered fulfilled, and unfortunately, WTF will not be able to exchange or refund tickets.
