After being obsessed with Hamilton and his catapult to newfound fame, we set out to find a female New Yorker who has fallen off the public's radar. We researched a number of women; all important and all of whom deserve their stories to be told. We chose Emily because her story connects with so many issues we're dealing with today. Emily was a woman making her way in the male-dominated profession of engineering. Even in 2018, women are still struggling to make headway in STEM careers. The story of the Brooklyn Bridge is not only one of women's rights, but of immigration, technological advancement, and city planning- all important topics in today's world of megacities. We are now researching Emily's life and times in order to write a poignant, topical musical to bring her legacy back into the spotlight.
