NO GREATER LOVE
Music by Gary Funk
Book and Lyrics by Edward Morgan, Gary & Sylvia Funk
A musical commemorating the worst hard-rock mining disaster in U.S. history. A young man gets off the train in Butte, Montana, June 1917. He gets a rollicking tour of the town and quickly falls in love. A veteran Irish miner hikes the hills with his wife and she tells him she’s pregnant. They begin to plan their future. Then disaster strikes and both men are among a desperate group of miners trapped underground. As the drama unfolds, their partners and many others wait and watch above. NO GREATER LOVE is a stirring musical tale of heroism and heart.
