Music mogul Mathew Knowles and playwright Je’Caryous Johnson are teaming up for a new theatrical production titled Survivor: The Destiny’s Child Musical.
According to the press release, the show will be told from Knowles perspective and takes audiences through a captivating storyline addressing the layers of evolution – good and bad – that he faced during his pioneering climb into the music industry. Ultimately, the story shares the message that building a dream takes sacrifice, even at the cost of everything and everyone you love.
“I want to pull back the curtain,” explains Knowles, Destiny’s Child co-creator and manager. “I feel it’s time to give the world an opportunity to hear, see andfeel the victories and failures that I’ve had as a husband, father and manager who risked everything in pursuit of fulfilling dreams – those of mine and others.”
With a project of such magnitude and significance, Knowles knew there was no storyteller better prepared to bring his vision to life than multi-hyphenate writer, producer, director, and Houston native, Je’Caryous Johnson.
“It is my mission to tell the stories of our legends and cement their legacies in the history of our world,” continues Johnson, “but this one is very dear to me. As a native Houstonian, I have a special affinity for Destiny’s Child because we are from the same city and it is one that breeds greatness! I can assure their fans, and mine, that I will give everything I have to this story and will make sure it is the greatest show they ever experience!”
Survivor: The Destiny’s Child Musical will be presented in 2020 with a dazzling premiere in Houston and plans for Broadway, London’s West End and a world tour.
