The legendary African American musical, The Gospel at Colonus, a soaring celebration of transcendence and the fragility of life, will be presented by the Avant Bard theatre from February 23, 2017 to March 26, 2017. The musical will be performed at the Gunston Arts Center, Theatre Two 2700 South Lang Street Arlington, VA.
The Gospel at Colonus transforms Sophocles’ timeless tale of the last days of Oedipus into a parable for our times. Its message of redemption is sorely needed. The Gospel at Colonus reminds audiences that out of the deepest sorrows, the highest and most uplifting hope can emerge, with its epic poetry and magnificent score. The play is produced by WCS Avant Bard.
All previews (Feb 23-25), as well as Thursday evening and Saturday matinee performances, are Pay What You Will. There is a $10 minimum when paying online; otherwise, attendees name their price at the door. For ticket information, click here.
