Charlie Anderson, a strong and upright Virginia farmer, wants nothing to do with the Civil War. He’ll “not go hunting for strangers to kill,” nor allow his six sons to get involved. But the war comes to him in this deeply moving musical drama, featuring a luscious score of richly melodic songs. Shenandoah is an inspiring musical with heart, beauty and enduring values.
