New York, NY... it's a helluva town 4!

again on sunday, we saw two shows.

the first was "Sistas", a musical with a loose story line staged in the attic of the character's recently deceased grandmother.  it celebrates the prominent women of color in music over the years--
althea gibson, mahalia jackson,  dianah ross, aretha franklin, dionne warwick, gladys knight, ella fitzgerald and others. 

very entertaining! perhaps surprisingly, it was written by dorothy marcic who is white.

not surprisingly, black theater goers made up the bulk of this audience as well. white or black, we all were blessed with a talented cast of women putting on a helluva show.
