Based on the Newbery Honor-winning book by Jacqueline Woodson and illustrated by Hudson Talbott, this new musical, with music and lyrics by Tyrone L. Robinson, a book by Melody Cooper, and direction by Melissa Maxwell, follows one girl in modern-day Brooklyn as she explores her family's past. As seven generations of women pass on the family tradition of the "show way", or a secret quilt to freedom, from slavery to today, they also pass on their strength and determination to be free.
In "Show Way," Toshi Georgiana looks for a beloved family heirloom. As she searches, the generations of women who came before her, from slaves who sewed paths to freedom to civil rights marchers, pass on their stories, and teach Toshi to reconnect with the past and celebrate the possibilities of the future. The "Show Way" cast includes David Andino, Ashley Lynette Brown, Adiagha Faizah, Norma Hernandez, Christine Lee, Danea Robinson, and Donnell E. Smith. The crew includes Director Melissa Maxwell, Set Designer Kyle Dixon, Costume Designer Amanda Jenks, Lighting Designer Josh Bradford, Musical Director Mike Pettry, and Production Stage Manager Emily Rolston.
