WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Avant Bard Theatre proudly presents the legendary African-American musical The Gospel at Colonus, a soaring celebration of transcendence and the fragility of life. The Gospel at Colonus transforms Sophocles's timeless tale of the last days of Oedipus into a parable for our times. Its message of redemption is sorely needed. With its epic poetry and magnificent score, The Gospel at Colonus reminds us that out of the deepest sorrows, the highest and most uplifting hope can emerge.
