Dessa Rose is based on the book by Sherley Anne Williams with lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime, Once On This Island, Seussical and Rocky The Musical). As multiple award winners, and with nominations for Grammys, Academy Awards, and a Golden Globe, this musical collaboration is spectacular.

Also starring in this vibrant musical drama are: John Addison (Phantom of the Opera, LES MISERABLES, A Little Night Music), Edward Baruwa (Sister Act, Avenue Q, LES MISERABLES), Sharon Benson (Hot Mikado, Cats, Carmen Jones),Alexander Evans (The Secret Garden, Carousel, Masterclass), Cameron Leigh (Imagine This, Calamity Jane, Chicago).
