The production, which closed on May 17th, celebrates the Fisk Jubilee Singers, a choir still in operation today that was founded shortly after the Civil War at one of the first schools for freed slaves and follows Ella, a pop-culture obsessed teenager living in the present day who is transported back in time to meet the Jubilee Singers and gain a new appreciation for history and education.
The show was written by Myla Churchill, directed by Colman Domingo and starred Bryson Bruce, Denielle Marie Gray, Cynthia Nesbit, Sam Ray, La’Nette Wallace and Sekou Luke.
