Don't miss the brand new musical with a South African pop and gospel twist

Why See Wildflower?


A Brand New South African-Flavored Musical

Wildly known for its late night comedy, New York City's Apollo Theater shows a more theatrical side with its Salon Series, which facilitates a one week residency to help up and coming artists develop and test new works from across disciplines and genres. In partnership with non-profit cultural organization National Black Theatre, Apollo presents Wildflower, a brand new musical with a South African pop and gospel twist.

Written by musical director Jason Micheal Webb and actor/writer/director Lelund Durond Thompson, Wildflower transports audiences to South Africa in the early 90s. A nation on the brink of historical change, South Africa is about to see the end of the Apartheid era and its first black president come to power. Set against this political tumult, its story follows a rebellious yet dedicated young mother who unknowingly crosses paths with a Sangoma (a traditional healer) and learns that her ancestor's have a plan for her young son. Torn between duty and freedom, she must choose her ancestor's machinations or her own future, both with difficult consequences.
