As part of the 85th Anniversary Celebration of the Famed Apollo Theatre, WiLDFLOWERr, a work-in-progress being developed as part of National Black Theater’s Soul L.A.B. Residency and the Apollo Theater (which began in 2016) will take place on April 26 and 27. WiLDFLOWER is a new musical that follows a rebellious, but devoted young mother who unwittingly meets a Sangoma, learns her ancestors’ purpose for her young son, and then must choose between the cost of obeying her ancestors or the higher cost of defying them. Set in the tumult of the early 90’s in both South Africa & the US, WiLDFLOWER features an exciting South African Pop & Gospel score to tell this epic tale. Tshidi Manye (The Lion King) and Quentin Earl Darrington (Once on this Island) will take center stage.
