Sistas


Sistas the Musical off Broadway

Sistas is an uplifting musical journey of a multi-generational African-American Family. Based on a series of interviews conducted with Black women over a six-year period, using a playlist of songs made famous by artists that include Billie Holiday, Lena Horne, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Beyoncé and others, this musical tells of the struggles, the joys and the triumphs of being black and of being a woman in America. Told through the life and experiences of one woman and the women in her family, the story easily segues from the days of Jim Crow to the present and covers a range of topics from segregation, the women's movement, to the meaning of love and control. The narrative is stitched together using the lyrics of songs that perfectly capture the mood and speaks to the issues of each period and time—“Strange Fruit,” “Society's Child,” “Taint Nobody's Business” to expressions of self-worth and independence—“I am Not My Hair” by India.Arie, “A Woman's Worth” by Alicia Keys, “Golden” by Jill Scott, and Erykah Badu's “Tyrone.” In the end, the women find strength in each other’s stories and arrive at a way to best honor the memory of their beloved Grandma—a seminal figure in their development as strong and accomplished women.
