When the death of the 92-year-old Matriarch brings a family of African American women home to clean out the attic, they unpack box after box of memories. The items take them on a rollercoaster of a journey through the history of black women, from the trials of segregation to the civil rights era to the empowerment of the 90s, all told through a series of smash hit songs. This dynamic musical comedy features such numbers as “Oh, Happy Day,” “I Will Survive” and “A Woman’s Worth,” among many other favorite standards. Produced by three-time Tony Award Winner Hinton Battie, Sistas is written by Dorothy Marcic and directed by Kenneth Ferrone, a star-studded creative team that makes this a show you definitely don’t want to miss!
In the end, the women find strength in each other’s stories and come upon a way to honor the memory of their grandmother, who ultimately emerges as a seminal figure in their development as accomplished women, despite the challenges they have all faced.
