A series of musical vignettes chronicling unprecedented times.

Written as the Covid-19 pandemic unfolded, Breathe follows five pairs of characters grappling with the virus’s impact on their lives, families, relationships, society, and health. Ranging from lighthearted to heartbreaking, unbelievable and all-too-real, these vignettes tackle everything from parenting in Covid, to Black Lives Matter protests, to saying goodbye to a spouse via Zoom.

Conceived and written by New York Times best-selling novelist Jodi Picoult and playwright Timothy Allen McDonald (James and The Giant Peach, The Big One-Oh!), Breathe consists of five interlocking suites, with music and lyrics from five songwriting teams whose credits include Dear Edwina, Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical, and The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical. By turns funny and heartbreaking, unbelievable and all-too-real, Breathe takes our familiar feelings of uncertainty and puts it to song.⁠
