For our Tenth Anniversary Season, we are proud to present our first musical, "Sistas," by Dorothy Marcic. Five women three sisters, a great-granddaughter, a sister-in-law sort through the attic of their recently departed family matriarch, in search of inspiration for her memorial service. They unearth trials and tears, love and laughter, and perform the music of iconic artists from Bessie Smith to Beyoncé. Sistas traces the relationship of Black women and popular music, with songs including "Oh, Happy Day," "God Bless The Child," "Stormy Weather," "Nowhere To Run," "I Will Survive," "Single Ladies," "I Am Not My Hair," "A Woman's Worth," and many more. The cast includes Sarina-Joi Crowe as Tamika; Lisa Graham as Gloria; Jennifer Whitcomb-Oliva as Roberta; Aleta Myles as Simone; and Brittany Nelson as Heather. |
The playwright is Nashvilles own Dorothy Marcic, author of the internationally successful musical Respect, which is a chronicle of womens struggle for equality as expressed in popular song. Shes based nowadays in New York, but some of the early workshops and readings of Sistas: The Musical happened here in Music City. Since then, the show has run off-Broadway for some 5 years.
