Henry Box Brown – A Musical Journey

14:30, 02 - 26 Aug

Tony Award winner Ben Harney (Broadway's Dreamgirls), and writer Mehr Mansuri, lead this musical about an 1850s Virginia slave who ships himself to freedom in a box. In a fusion of original songs blending gospel, R'n'B and bluegrass, as well as a cappella spirituals, it is performed by New York's finest gospel singers and top Broadway artists. Viewed by over 20,000 people from New York to Los Angeles, it is a crowd-pleaser that shines a light on our capacity to transcend. 'Stirring…rousing songs’ (New York Times on Family Fare).
