2018 Best Musical nominee (MusicalTheatreReview.com). Amazing fusion of R’n’B and gospel telling the unmissable true tale of an 1850s Virginia slave who nails himself to freedom in a box. Performed for over 30,000 people from NYC, it’s a crowd-pleaser that shines a light on our capacity to transcend. Superb 16-strong New York cast directed by Tony winner Ben Harney (Dreamgirls). NEA award-winning writer, Mehr Mansuri and championed by the Baha’i Unity Center of NYC.

‘Astounding a capella – standing ovation’ (Fest).

‘Compelling, remarkable, great songs, authentic…’ (Times).

‘Beautiful, thunderous applause, moving tenderness’ (FringeReview.co.uk).
