Can't wait until 2017 to get a taste of the Broadway-bound Sousatzka? Wait no more, because several tracks have been released on the show's official website. Click here to check out, "Rainbow Nation," "Let Go," "So Sing," and "Shibhambu."

Based on the original novel Madame Sousatzka written by Bernice Rubens, Sousatzka is set in London, England in 1982 and tells the story of a musical prodigy torn between two powerful women from vastly different worlds: his mother, a political refugee from South Africa and his piano teacher, a brilliant eccentric with a shattered past. These two proud, iconoclastic women must ultimately cross cultural and racial divides to find common ground, or else jeopardize the young musician's destiny.

SOUSATZKA stars Tony Award®-winner Victoria Clark (The Light In The Piazza), Tony Award®-nominee Montego Glover (Memphis), two-time Tony Award®-winner Judy Kaye (Phantom of the Opera, Nice Work if You Can Get it), and features the Broadway debut of Jordan Barrow (The Tempest / Shakespeare in the Park).

SOUSATZKA, a Garth Drabinsky production presented by Teatro Proscenium Limited Partnership (Richard Stursberg, CEO) and written by three-time Tony Award®-nominated book writer Craig Lucas (An American in Paris, The Light In The Piazza, Prelude to a Kiss) and the legendary team of Tony Award®-winning Lyricist Richard Maltby, Jr. (Closer Than Ever, Baby, Big, Fosse) and Academy Award®-winning Composer David Shire (Closer Than Ever, Baby, Big, the film Norma Rae), will begin previews on February 25.

Choreographed by ten-time Tony Award®-nominee Graciela Daniele (Ragtime, The Visit) and directed by Adrian Noble (former Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, The Secret Garden, Macbeth /Metropolitan Opera), Sousatzka will officially open on Thursday, March 23, 2017 at Toronto's historic Elgin Theatre (189 Yonge Street).
