BWW Review: Get Ready to Raise the Roof with Seattle Rep's SHOUT SISTER SHOUT!

Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Have you heard of her? Maybe not (I know I hadn't before last night). But even if you're unfamiliar with her, you're more than likely familiar with one of the many artists she's influenced. Artists such as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Little Richard to name just a few. But that's kind of the point of the show, a?oeShout Sister Shout!a??, currently playing at the Seattle Rep. A show that tells the story of the a?oeGodmother of Rock n' Rolla??, and how we need to recognize these artists that have been whitewashed and mansplained from history. But even beyond that, you want to catch this for the insanely powerful performance of Carrie Compere as Tharpe, who will have you rockin' in your seat as she tears the roof off the Rep.

Photo Flash: First Look at SHOUT SISTER SHOUT at Seattle Rep

Long before 'women in rock' became a media catchphrase, Rosetta Tharpe proved in spectacular fashion that women rocked.
