“Whether you’re a monotheist or a polytheist or no theist at all, it will speak to you, and you might answer back, dancing and clapping and lifting your own voice.” -The New York Times
Soulful and stirring, The Gospel at Colonus reimagines the story of Oedipus as the centerpiece of an African American Pentecostal church service. A redemptive celebration, this one-of-a-kind theatrical event breathes new life into a classic myth with a score of powerful gospel music.
A bold collaboration from an extraordinary team of artists led by Charles Newell, Mark J.P. Hood, and TaRon Patton, The Gospel at Colonus builds upon the strengths and experiences of its directors to bring this nationally-touring Broadway smash hit to life with new clarity on Chicago’s South Side.
Subscriptions including this production are on sale now and can be purchased online or by calling (773) 753-4472.
