With news of their grandmother's passing, a group of sisters come together to pick a song to honor their grandmother's legacy at her memorial service. Going through their grandmother's keepsakes, the women uncover mementos that testify to their grandmother's profound contributions to their family history and their community. In the process, the sisters tell their stories through the many indelible songs that trace the rich and conflicted history of Black women that span the days of Jim Crow, the 60's Girl Groups, the emerging female empowerment of the 90's, and the unique challenges of today's youth. With classic musical hits including Oh...Happy Day, Precious Lord, Stormy Weather, R.E.S.P.E.C.T., Say a Little Prayer, Tyrone, I Have Nothing, Single Ladies and A Woman's Worth, Sistas The Musical orchestrates an exciting and moving evolutionary concerto of African-American women.

Written by Fulbright Scholar Dr. Dorothy Marcic, Sistas The Musical was filmed at St. Paul's Community Baptist Church in Brooklyn, New York. The show is currently being performed Off Broadway in its second year in Manhattan before enthusiastic live audiences
