Great show. Good story. Excellent singing, and, if you are a person who loves music, you will know all of the songs. Small, cozy theatre.

Quotes & Highlights

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


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
