GOSPEL AT COLONUS by Lee Breuer and composed by Bob Telson
Inspired by the joyous faith at the heart of African-American Christianity with Greek myth replacing Bible story, The Gospel at Colonus seamlessly blends the agony of Greek tragedy and the ecstasy of American gospel music. It is a sermon on the ways of fate and particularly on a happy death  sung acted and preached by members of the congregation and choir who assume the characters of the "play" with the ground-shaking thunder of a gospel revival meeting.

The Gospel at Colonus is a landmark work of the American musical theatre that has been nominated for, and won, many awards, including an OBIE for Outstanding Musical, finalist for Pulitzer (1995), a Tony, and a Grammy for best-recorded theatrical score. It is an adaptation of Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus, performed as an oratorio set in a black church.
