The Color Purple is brilliance on Broadway. Cynthia Erivo, Jennifer Hudson and Danielle Brooks stun on stage with their gutsy and heart warming performances. Be sure to catch this musical!
Rarely do you feel a spark of inspiration just by the chords struck on the piano in a musical, even before the poignant dialogue and singing compels you to action. “Witness Uganda” is that rare and powerful gem I was lucky enough to witness last year this time. This year, the play that has won the 2012 Richard Rogers Award for Musical Theater and 2013 Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award will be on the stage at the American Repertory Theater from February 4 – March 16, 2014. It is a must-see, a travel see, and an experience do!
You will leave encouraged, connected, motivated and moved to action by “Witness Uganda” through the music, dialogue and most importantly the lived experience which inspired the story.

Matilda the Musical was an amazing show to watch. With amazing adults and of course “revolting children” it’s no wonder Matilda was a hit on Stratford and West End theatres. It was approximately 1 hour and forty-five minutes in running time but worthwhile and I recommend it for 4 to 140 years old.
