THREE SISTAHS replaces BLACKBERRY DAZE as the final production of our 2017-18 Season! Please note, this is a change in production, NOT a change in schedule.
THREE SISTAHS transplants Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters from Moscow 1901 to Washington DC, circa 1969. Deep harmonies of Motown, bebop, gospel and blues provide the backdrop as the sisters navigate between Vietnam, civil rights and a smoldering family dynamic taken straight from Chekhov’s classic. A hauntingly beautiful musical score lifts their story to strange compelling heights and a stunning conclusion.
THREE SISTAHS features Jennifer Robinson returning to the BTT stage as Olive Bradshaw, following her powerhouse performance earlier this season in the title role of CAROLINE OR CHANGE. Ebony Gammage appears as Marsha, and Kenyata White as Irene with Musical Direction by Anthony Cowan. David Hemphill will direct.
THREE SISTAHS will be performed by Black Theatre Troupe from APRIL 6 – 22, 2018 at the Helen K. Mason Performing Arts Center, 1333 E. Washington St. Phoenix, AZ 85034.
Tickets are $38 and are on sale at online or by calling 602-258-8129.
