WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Originally produced in 1940, Cabin in the Sky followed Porgy and Bess in celebrating African-American music and dance traditions. The musical tells the story of "Little Joe" Jackson, a charming ne'er-do-well who dies in a saloon brawl but is given six months on earth to prove his worth before judgment day. Vernon Duke's score—which will be restored to its original glory for Encores!—gave us jazz hits like "Taking a Chance on Love," blended with authentic gospel numbers and full-fledged modern dance pieces, originally created by George Balanchine.
