A WORLD PREMIERE MUSICAL
This world premiere musical is inspired by the legendary story of Stax Records and the rise of iconic artists such as Otis Redding, The Staple Singers, Isaac Hayes, Booker T & The MG's, Rufus & Carla Thomas, David Porter, Wilson Pickett, Johnnie Taylor, and Eddie Floyd—who created the very foundation of American Soul Music.
SOUL The Stax Musical celebrates how music brought Americans together during the early years of the Civil Rights Movement, and continues to bring generations together—from those who remember the early days of R&B, to those who are discovering these phenomenal artists today.
Content Advisory: This musical celebration set in the early years of the Civil Rights Movement contains some adult language and may be most suitable for middle school audiences and up.
Approximate running time is 2 hour and 15 minutes with one intermission.
