About Sistas: The Musical
PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ON UPCOMING PERFORMANCE DATES
Sistas is an uplifting musical journey of a multi-generational African-American family. Based on a series of interviews conducted with black women over a six-year period, using a playlist of songs made famous by artists that include Billie Holiday, Lena Horn, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Beyoncé and others, this musical tells of the struggles, the joys and the triumphs of being black and of being a woman in America. Told through the life and experiences of one woman and the women in her family, the story easily segues from the days of Jim Crow to the present and covers a range of topics from segregation and the women's movement to the meaning of love and control.
Sistas uses the lyrics of songs made famous by artists like Ma Rainey, Billie Holiday, Lena Horn, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Mary J. Blige and more. Hit songs include: "Oh, Happy Day", "Mama Said", "I Will Survive", "Ain't Nobody's Business", "God Bless the Child", "Respect", "My Man", "Baby, I'm Yours", "Say a Little Prayer", "Stop in the Name of Love", "All the Single Ladies" and "We Are Family".
