HARRIS CENTER PRESENTS
A NEW BROADWAY MUSICAL
Thursday, March 29 - Sunday, April 1, 2018
The awe-inspiring true story behind the world’s most beloved song — captured in a Broadway musical. “The hymn, which many associate with the civil rights movement, was written in the 18th century by an Englishman who worked in the slave-trading business. Curious to know more?” (New York Times). Torn between following in the footsteps of his father — a slave trader — or embracing the more compassionate views of his childhood sweetheart, John Newton embarks on a perilous voyage on the high seas, accompanied by his slave, Thomas. That journey finds John in his darkest hour, a transformative moment of self-reckoning that inspires a blazing anthem of hope. “Inspirational, beautiful, emotional, exhilarating” (Associated Press).
