Sheryl Lee Ralph is teaming up with AnthonyKen, LLC for Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical. The Off-Broadway show comes back to New York after SOLD OUT runs in NYC, Miami and Washington, D.C.
Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical tells the life story of Sylvester through his music and his point of view. Beyond all the trials, tribulations glitz and glamour of his lifestyle, he was a symbol for being fabulous, but, also, a symbol for unapologetically being who he was. The words and music of this show will enter your ear, soar through your heart and inspire your soul. It’s guaranteed to have everyone dancing in the aisles.
Broadway Star and show writer Anthony Wayne (Broadway’s “PIPPIN”, “PRISCILLA”, “Anything Goes”) sings lives and breathes life as the 1970’s Disco Singer. The show also features Broadway’s Anastacia McCleskey and Jacqueline B. Arnold as The Two Tons of Fun/Weather Girls.
Joining forces with Mighty Real as a producing partner is Instant Mom star Sheryl Lee Ralph and The D.I.V.A. Foundation. It’s Ralph’s non-profit organization that focuses on generating resources and coordinating artistic activities to create awareness of and combat HIV/AIDS. The charitable organization was founded by the singer-actress in 1990 as a memorial to the many friends she lost to AIDS as an original company member of the original company of “Dreamgirls.”
“As we acknowledge National AIDS Awareness Day, I know Sylvester is singing and dancing under that great disco ball in heaven and we prepare to light up Broadway with his music and memory,” said Ralph.
Mighty Real is set to start previews September 5th, 2014 and Opening Night is September 12th, 2014 at the Theatre at St. Clements.
