"Set in the post-Jazz Age of 1930's New York, MACKENZIE AND THE MISSING BOY is a noir musical melodrama about an impoverished flapper with a knack for spinning elaborate lies. Mackenzie wants nothing more than to reunite with her orphaned son, but in order for them to live happily ever after, she has one more tall tale to tell." For more info, visit www.joelbnew.com.
