‘Goshen’ to play the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place
The world-premiere production features Chicago’s Deeply Rooted Dance Theater and the music of Grammy-winner Donald Lawrence.
Everything from gospel music, dramatic narrative, dance and song are on the bill for “Goshen,” a musical/dance collaboration between Deeply Rooted Dance Theater and Grammy Award winner Donald Lawrence making its world premiere at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place this spring.
Also featured in the production are the members of The Tri-City Singers, rapper Sir The Baptist, poet J. Ivy, choir master Zeke Locke, 8 principal singers, and 11 choral singers. The work “addresses contemporary matters of race and equity while exploring historic themes of power, wealth, fear, and oppression depicted in ancient biblical narrative,” according to Friday’s announcement. The score will feature selections from Lawrence’s Grammy-nominated album “Goshen” (the awards will be presented Sunday night) as well as original music specific to the production.
“Goshen,” directed and co-choreographed by Deeply Rooted co-founder and creative director Kevin Iega Jeff, will run May 22-31 at the theater (175 E. Chestnut).
