In honor of its 40th anniversary, acclaimed a cappella group Sweet Honey in the Rock presents its most ambitious live performance to date in Forty and Fierce. Led by noted director-choreographer Dianne McIntyre, the group's first scripted show features medleys of some of Sweet Honey's most popular songs, special guest musicians and intimate personal stories about the group's history from each member. With rousing a cappella renditions of spirituals, gospel, blues, reggae, hip-hop and jazz standards, the five-voice choir of African-American women captures the transcendent harmonies and driving rhythms of the black experience with an inspiring message of social justice. The group recently performed at the national memorial service for Nelson Mandela and has sung at the White House and collaborated with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Learn More

The story was good, the dancing was very good, but I wasn't a big fan of the music. I didn't hate the music - but none of it stuck with me. Normally when i see a musical for the first time I leave humming at least one of the songs...

The cast was really good, and I liked the music and overall story. However, this show was too long! What type of broadway show is actually longer than the movie upon which it is based? Show should be cut down and pacing should improve.
Quotes & Highlights
“Daldry and Darling’s vibrant stagings grab hold from the start. “The Stars Look Down,” razzle-dazzle girls’ dance-class “Shine” and explosively evolving “Solidarity” introduce the eclectic dance forms. The eyes never rest as Billy’s home and other sites unfold and slide in from the walls of Ian MacNeil’s boldly drab union-hall set (expressively lit by Rick Fisher).“—_”San Francisco Chronicle":http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2011/06/29/DD361K2QOE.DTL#ixzz1S80KKEy2 _
