About the Show
Inspired by a true story set in 1940’s New York City, Ballad of Dreams sings of the struggle of motherhood and the power of friendship while chasing a big dream. In this fresh blend of Beautiful meets Bandstand, Hernandez’s music includes original standards reminiscent of the period, soaring love duets, and belt-worthy contemporary power ballads.
Audrey McKenna, a vibrant grandmother, and mother of thirteen is confronted with the unfulfilled dreams of her youth to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City, circa WW2. With the help of her best friend Rose, they each journey in discovering love, their own identities, and independence as women in a time when society tried to define that for them.
