The Foundations hit-maker has penned music for the show which will debut Off-Broadway at the MCC Theater.

In Only Gold, a royal family’s arrival in Paris sets a flurry of activity into motion, forcing nobility and townsfolk alike to examine the choices they’ve made. As loyalties and loves are tested, will they find the courage to follow their hearts?

Paris will never be the same.
