ABOUT THE SHOW
SOUSATZKA, A World Premiere Musical Event begins at the Elgin Theatre on February 25, 2017 for a limited engagement on its way to Broadway and is based on the original novel by Bernice Rubens. It features a multi-award winning cast of forty-seven (47) and a multi-award winning creative team. Set in London, England in 1982, it tells the story of a young musical prodigy, Themba (JORDAN BARROW, Broadway debut) torn between two powerful women from vastly different worlds; his mother, Xholiswa (MONTEGO GLOVER, Tony Award nominee), a political activist from Soweto, South Africa, and his piano teacher, Madame Sousatzka (VICTORIA CLARK, Tony Award winner),
a brilliant eccentric from Warsaw, Poland who has a shattered past as a Holocaust survivor and refugee. These two proud, iconoclastic women must ultimately cross cultural and racial divides to find common ground, or else put the boy’s destiny in jeopardy.
