The Moment Was Now is a new musical play that takes place in post-civil war Baltimore in 1869, a turning point in US history where America almost did the right thing. Echoing the current moment, the play centers around the impassioned search for unity between the dynamic historic leaders of powerful constituencies during Reconstruction.
