Produced by Woodie King’s New Federal Theatre and written and directed by Elizabeth Van Dyke, The Great Men of Gospel: Spirit Into Sound uses an incredible ensemble of actors and singers. They will take us on a journey through the evolution of gospel music in America, celebrating that African Continuum, that spirit which is the foundation of music in the world today. They portray the slaves, the Jubilee Quartets, sing the songs of Tindsley, Dorsey, the Five Blind Boys, The Pilgrim Travelers, the Dixie Hummingbirds, The Soul Stirrers, James Cleveland and more.
Great Men of Gospel: Spirit Into Sound is an uplifting, moving and inspirational evening of theatre, definitely another “Don’t Miss” UPAC evening under the stars at Untermyer Park!
