The story of African-American women told through Top 40 music, from Bessie Smith to Beyonce — Jubilee Theatre is proud to present Sistas: The Musical! Check it out this Saturday, August 3rd, beginning at 3:00 p.m.
After a matriarch’s death, the women in the family clean Grandma’s attic and find love and old memories packed away, and in the process, hit tunes that trace the history of black women, from the trials of the 1930s through the Girl Groups of the 60s to the empowerment of the 90s. Songs include “Oh, Happy Day,” “Mama Said,” “I Will Survive,” “Tyrone,” “I Am Not My Hair” and “A Woman’s Worth.”
Sistas: The Musical, the story of African-American women through Top-40 music, is produced by 3-time Tony winner Hinton Battle, written by Dorothy Marcic (writer of “RESPECT: The Musical,” which has played in 20 cities), and directed by Kenneth Ferrone.
“Sistas is a musical exploration not only through decades of African-American, female-artist hits but through strong personal histories and realities of African American history. If you enjoy theatre that makes you think, while also wrapping you up in a big group hug of strength and soul, then Sistas is the show for you.” - Broadway World
