A Concert Reading
Written by Nolan Williams, Jr.
Directed by Robert Barry Fleming
To make his next big deal, an up-and-coming Philadelphia real estate developer needs to acquire—and level—a beloved family-owned soul food establishment. But as he’s taken through the restaurant’s incredible 100-year history, the present becomes entwined with the past, and the tale emerges of the escaped southern migrants who risked everything to build and celebrate their new life up north through cooking. With a live band on stage, cast members will perform select songs from this dynamic new score composed by American songwriter Nolan Williams, Jr., an emerging new voice in musical theatre.
