A riveting demonstration of the power of music to move the soul!

San Francisco Examiner


March 6—31, 2019

By George Brant
Directed by Robert Kelley


Stirring churches in the morning and the Cotton Club at night, Sister Rosetta Tharpe became a musical legend. With competition growing on the 1940s Gospel Circuit,
she auditions a new partner, a beauty with a voice made in heaven. Will they blend, break, or find harmony at last? Don’t miss this roof-raising musical hit
from our New Works Festival, the saga of the woman who inspired Elvis, Ray Charles, and more on her way to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

MARIE AND ROSETTA runs approximately ninety minutes with no intermission.


Watch Sister Rosetta Tharpe in 1964 singing "Didn't it Rain"
