The experience of African-American women forms the central pull of this touching musicalBuy Tickets
Popular off-Broadway musical Sistas returns to thw St Luke's Theatre! is a nonstop celebration! Produced by three-time Tony winner Hinton Battle and directed by Smash's Kenneth Ferrone, the production follows five women as they prepare to bury the matriarch of their family. Truths, memories and relationships come to the fore, sometimes welcome, sometimes not. Bring your best gal pal, your sister, your mother, even your aunt for this celebration of female family.
After a much-loved matriarch's death, the women in the family clean out her attic and find love and old memories packed away, and in the process, hit tunes that trace the history of black women, from the trials of the 1930s through the Girl Groups of the 60s to the empowerment of the 90s. Songs include "Oh, Happy Day," "Mama Said," "I Will Survive," "Tyrone," "I am Not My Hair" and "A Woman's Worth."
