Inspired by Gayle F. Wald’s book Shout, Sister, Shout!, this new musical tells the story of Sister Rosetta Tharpe — one of America’s most influential rock, R&B, and gospel crossover singers and guitarists. Ambitious, courageous, and uncompromisingly public, Tharpe became a pioneer of the women’s movement for racial and sexual equality and a musical legend who redefined the national and international music scene in the 1930s, ’40s, and beyond. Join Ford’s Theatre to dive into Cheryl L. West’s spirited, authentic, and emotionally charged story about a charismatic music forerunner and the authentic roots of rock-and-roll.

Recommended for ages 12 and older.
