High energy, high talent. Attended with 2 friends and we all thought it was time well spent. Goldstar price made it a good value. Just 90 minutes. Great "oldie" music, humor and some thought provoking and poignant dialogue.

Quotes & Highlights

" … a good-natured … evening with plenty of humor and some impressive voices." —The New York Times

Description

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."

Produced by three-time Tony winner Hinton Battle
Written by Dorothy Marcic (writer of Respect: The Musical, which has played in 20 cities)
Directed by Kenneth Ferrone
