Overview

Currently running off Broadway, Sistas by Dorothy Marcic is a nonstop celebration of African American women told through Top-40 music, from Bessie Smith to Beyoncé.

The story follows five women as they prepare to bury the matriarch of their family. As they clean Grandma’s attic the women discuss their family history and the history of African-American women. They find love and old memories packed away, as well as hit tunes that trace the history of black women, from the trials of the 1930s through the Girl Groups of the '60s to the empowerment of the '90s.

Songs include "Oh, Happy Day," "Mama Said," "I Will Survive," "Tyrone," "I Am Not My Hair" and "A Woman’s Worth."

Directed and Choreographed by Patdro Harris

Musical Direction by Brenda Hankins
