    PRESENTED BY MIXED MAGIC THEATRE

    Mahalia Jackson was a giant in a world of musical and social giants, listing among her friends some of the world's most respected entertainers, writers and civil rights leaders. Though she reigned as a pioneer interpreter of Gospel music, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and was described by Little Richard as “the true queen of spiritual singers.” This original play (with music) takes you on a train ride from Jackson's hometown of New Orleans to Chicago, and traces her life and the story of America in the throes of deep change. It is a celebration of musical greats that inlcude Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Clara Ward, Thomas Dorsey, Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong. It is also the story of her friendship with Martin Luther King and her commitment to the civil rights movement. Written & directed by Jonathan Pitts-Wiley.
