Celebrate the Life & Music of the Fabulous Sylvester
Off-Broadway sensation Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical returns for one special night only at New York City's historic Gramercy Theater this Summer! Written by and starring Broadway triple threat Anthony Wayne, the high spirited cabaret style concert chronicles the colorful life story of disco diva Sylvester through his greatest dance floor-filling, booty-shaking hits.
Packed to the rafters with sass, talent and musical spectacle, this loving tribute to one of the disco era's forgotten heroes brings Sylvester's larger than life personality back into the spotlight. Born in LA, the singer songwriter developed his voice in the gospel choir of his local Pentecostal Church. When the Church expressed distaste for his homosexuality, Sylvester found a new spiritual home with a group of drag queens, at the same time finding a new voice. His outrageously flamboyant style, androgyny and flawless falsetto made him a stalwart of the disco scene of the late 70s and 80s.
