An intriguing examination of America's relationship with poverty vis-a-vis morality. Set in post-Civil War New York State, this musical loosely follows historical figure Josephine "Effie" Lowell.  A privileged Civil War widow, Effie dedicates her life to being a "useful" citizen and becomes a renowned charity reformer.  As she claws her way up in a world ruled by men, she learns that some of her reforms actually hurt the people they are intended to help.
