All performances between May 7-May 12 of the world-premiere a cappella production Jubilee have been cancelled due to actor illness; additional performances have been added through Sunday June 9, 2019.
Inspired by the world-renowned Fisk Jubilee Singers, Jubilee chronicles the bold African American ensemble as they travel the world, captivating kings, queens and audiences with hymns and spiritual songs supported by their rich voices. Written and directed by Tazewell Thompson with vocal arrangements and music direction by Dianne Adams McDowell, Jubilee will now run through June 9, 2019 in the Kreeger Theater.
A member of the Arena Stage sales team will contact all patrons holding tickets for the cancelled performances, with an option to exchange into any other performance of Jubilee.
