With the ground-shaking thunder of a revival meeting and a rousing gospel and blues score, The Gospel at Colonus is an exuberant re-telling of Sophocles’ Oedipus at Colonus. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1988 generating excitement and inspiring a wide audience with its soaring voices, music and dance all set in the context of a black Pentecostal service.

“An exhilarating musical celebration.” – The New York Times
