MARIE AND ROSETTA

Gospel, guitar, and the godmother of rock-n-roll.

West Coast Premiere! 

January 16 - February 16, 2019

Get your front-row seat to music history in the making! Bringing fierce guitar playing and swing to gospel music, Sister Rosetta Tharpe was a legend in her time and huge influence on Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, and Ray Charles. Marie and Rosetta chronicles her first rehearsal with a young protégée, Marie Knight, as they prepare to embark on a tour that would establish them as one of the great duos in musical history. This story of letting loose, finding your voice, and freeing your soul is a soaring music-theatre experience chock full of roof-raising performances. 

Sister Rosetta Tharpe is a 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee!
