Marie and Rosetta

Showing at Cincinnati Playhouse at March 03 08:00:00 p.m..


Marx Theatre.

Celebrated for her fierce guitar playing and swinging gospel music, singer Sister Rosetta Tharpe became a veritable legend. Throughout the 1930s and '40s, Sister Rosetta performed gospel in the morning and swing music at the Cotton Club at night, to inevitably become a major influence on rock n rolls earliest icons. This play with music chronicles her first rehearsal with a young protégée, Marie Knight, as they prepare for a tour that would establish them as one of the great duet teams in musical history. Marie and Rosettas compelling life stories combined with roof-raising, heart-rending gospel songs set the stage for an inspiring evening at the theatre.

Not to be missed! Its enough to make the theatre faithful stand up and shout HALLELUJAH! Theatremania
