The Last Stop on Market Street is a captivating and uplifting musical adaptation of Matt de la Peña's acclaimed children's book. Centered around the curious and imaginative CJ, the story takes audiences on a journey through a vibrant and diverse cityscape. As CJ and his grandmother embark on their weekly bus ride, they encounter a kaleidoscope of characters and experiences that open CJ's eyes to the beauty of the world around him. With an inspiring mix of lively music and thoughtful lessons about empathy, community, and the power of seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary, this musical celebrates the richness of urban life and the boundless possibilities that await when we embrace the wonders of diversity.
