Best Actress Tony nominee Cynthia Erivo “has given Broadway one of its most electrifying performances in years” (Time Out New York) in this epic story of a young woman’s journey to love and triumph in the American South. Joining her is a powerhouse cast led by Tony and Grammy Award® winner Heather Headley (Aida, The Lion King) and Best Featured Actress Tony nominee Danielle Brooks (Orange is the New Black) in "the kind of heaven-sent debut that dreams are made of” (Entertainment Weekly).
