Marie and Rosetta
A play by George Brant
Directed by Egla Birmingham Hassan
Run time: approximately 110 minutes, no intermission
April 5-28
Thursday-Sundays


Get ready for an earth-shaking musical celebration featuring Denise Lee as the legendary Sister Rosetta Tharpe and American Idol’s Denise Jackson as Tharpe’s protégée, Marie Knight.

Despite their influence on Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles and more, Knight and Tharpe go largely uncredited for their contributions to rock and roll. George Brant’s play aims to correct historical oversights by providing a stage for Marie and Rosetta to share their story through powerful performances. Don’t miss the chance to witness the birth of a musical legacy that transcends time with an unforgettable night of toe-tapping, head-bopping-and soul-lifting entertainment.

In order to relieve financial barriers, our tickets range from $15-60, and YOU get to choose your price.
