With news of their grandmother's passing, a group of sisters come together to pick a song to honor their grandmother's legacy at her memorial service. Going through their grandmother's keepsakes, the women uncover mementos that testify to her profound contributions to their family history and their community. In the process, the sisters tell their stories through the many indelible songs that trace the rich and conflicted history of black women that span the days of Jim Crow, the 60's girl groups, the emerging female empowerment of the 90's, and the unique challenges of today's youth. The musical features familiar tunes like “Oh, Happy Day,” “ Stormy Weather,” “R.E.S.P.E.C.T.,” “Say a Little Prayer,” “Tyrone,” “I Have Nothing,” “Single Ladies” and “A Woman's Worth.”
Written by Dorothy Marcic, Sistas features set design by Josh Iacovelli, costume design by Tricia Barsamian and lighting design by Kia Rogers.
