The Gospel at Colonus

Jan. 17, 2020 - Jan. 26, 2020

With the ground-shaking thunder of a revival meeting and an electrifying gospel and blues score, The Gospel at Colonus is an exuberant re-telling of Sophocles’ Oedipus at Colonus. Featuring soaring voices, thrilling music and powerful dance, the musical is set in the context of a black Pentecostal service. Gospel premiered on Broadway in 1988 and was revived in 2018, playing to capacity audiences at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park.
