MIGHTY REAL: A FABULOUS SYLVESTER MUSICAL (formerly known as Fabulous, One More Time) began a series of concerts at le poisson rouge in New York City in 2012. These early concerts were followed by sold-out performances at The Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C. in January 2013, and additional concerts in Miami soon followed. MIGHTY REAL: A FABULOUS SYLVESTER MUSICAL made its Off-Broadway premiere in an acclaimed one-month limited engagement at Theatre at St. Clement's in September 2014. The critically acclaimed musical was nominated for a 2015 Off-Broadway Alliance Award and a 2015 AUDELCO Award for Best New Musical. In early 2015, the musical headed west to The BRAVA! Theater in San Francisco for a limited engagement, and performances/engagements followed in Philadelphia, D.C., and Atlanta. The show returned to The BRAVA! Theater in San Francisco for an acclaimed, sold-out limited engagement in February 2016. MIGHTY REAL: A FABULOUS SYLVESTER MUSICAL was featured in the acclaimed music documentary series "Unsung: Revisted" in 2015. MIGHTY REAL: A FABULOUS SYLVESTER MUSICAL Live Original Cast Recording is available online on iTunes and CD Baby.

AN EVENING WITH Phyllis Hyman enjoyed a sold out world-premiere limited engagement The Actor's Temple Theatre this past January. The musical takes place during Ms. Hyman's final performance in Philadelphia, the night before her scheduled Apollo performance on the day she took her life. The intimate show brings to life the untold story of the life, career and music of the singer/songwriter and actress in her own words. With her sultry vocals, Ms. Arnold channels Hyman, taking the audience on an inspirational evening of joy and pain with no regrets.
