Cast members from the Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s production of “Black Pearl Sings” are coming to Colectivo with a sneak peek featuring selections from their full show! Part of the Friday Song Series showcasing performances from The Rep’s 2017/18 Season…

Friday, January 12, 2018 @ Colectivo Prospect, 4pm

ABOUT THE MUSICAL playing January 19 – March 18, 2018 at the Stackner Cabaret: Music unites strangers and bridges racial divisions in this powerful story based on real life events. It’s 1933, and an ambitious song collector for the Library of Congress visits a Texas prison where she meets Pearl, an African-American woman with a soulful voice and steely spirit. Featuring more than a dozen beautiful a cappella renditions of spirituals and American folk songs, Black Pearl Sings! explores what it means to be a woman in a man’s world, being black in a white world, and fighting for one’s soul in a world where anyone can be a commodity. BroadwayWorld describes the play as “…a vivid reminder that the things that connect us are often stronger than the things which divide us.”
