Blues, R&B and Gospel Musical The Civil War Comes to Houston
The Masquerade Theatre presents the dramatic musical that portrays the American Civil War from the perspectives of Union soldiers, Confederate soldiers and slaves. With book and lyrics by Frank Wildhorn, Gregory Boyd and Jack Murphy and music by Frank Wildhorn, The Civil War was nominated for two Tony Awards and three Drama Desk Awards in 1999. Featuring an exciting musical score that includes gospel, folk, country, rock and R&B, the story is based on the letters, diaries and other correspondence between soldiers and their families as well as the words and writings of such key public figures of the day as Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglas and Walt Whitman. It's a gut-wrenching portrayal of the nation's most trying time, and prompts audiences to reconsider the notions of freedom, honor and faith.
