Katie, the Strongest of the Strong
Music by Faye Chiao

Based on the life of Austro-American weightlifter Katie Brumbach, THE STRONGEST OF THE STRONG is the charming and cheeky tale of Katie’s rise to fame, as she outlifts the strongest man in the world then joins the circus and eventually finds her place as an icon of the women’s suffrage movement.  Told through the eyes of journalist Marina Martin, a chorus of circus women take on a multitude of characters in this operatic adventure, showing us that strength and beauty come in all shapes and sizes.
