Amazing Grace Enjoys the Sweet Refrain of a Broadway Opening

Josh Young, Chuck Cooper, and the Broadway cast sing the praises of the new spiritual musical. logo

Amazing Grace, a new Broadway musical about the life of John Newton and the story behind the show's title hymn, opened last night at the Nederlander Theatre. The cast — led by Tony nominee Josh Young — was on hand to talk about the show's long journey to the Great White Way. Now that it's finally arrived, the company can sit back and revel in a nightly cathartic sing-along with an audience that's been taken to church.
