TWO WHITE MEN WITH SOUL. Bob Telson and Lee Breuer's Pulitzer nominated play, Gospel at Colonus, is a musical based on Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus, set in a Pentecostal church where redemption is possible and revenge is oh-so-sweet.
GOSPEL MEETS THE GREEKS. Even the stodgiest theatre snob will find it difficult to stay in their seats as gospel greats like the Five Blind Boys of Alabama and Jevetta Steele sing their way through the ancient text reformulated for an all-black cast.
ROYALTY REIGNS. Charleston's own Royal Baptist Missionary Church mass choir will fill out the cast as the Greek chorus in this piece that went from downtown Brooklyn at BAM to the Lunt-Fontaine and 28 years later, is still alive and well, which is more than can be said about Oedipus, that mother-fornicator.
