About this show

Celebration Theatre presents the West Coast Premiere of a brand new musical, The Women of Brewster Place,featuring music, book and lyrics by Tim Acito, choreography by Ameenah Kaplan, musical direction by Greg Nabours, and direction by Michael Matthews. Based on Gloria Naylor's beloved award winning collection of stories, the show uses an original score of R&B, pop, disco and old school funk to the individual stories of eight very different African American women in a 1970's housing project who are struggling with issues of identity, poverty, hope, love and loss. Simultaneously comic and heartbreaking, wise and shortsighted, noble and flawed, each of the women must ultimately face the largest question of all ? where does one's individual story end, and the story of one's community begin?
