  3. TR In Concert: The Music of Sam Cooke


Twist the night away with the stories and music of the King of Soul, Sam Cooke!

Singer, songwriter, entrepreneur and civil rights activist, Cooke fused soul and pop, pioneering the sound for future R&B artists. In 1960 his career skyrocketed from his first secular single “You Send Me,” which was followed by the chart-toppers “Chain Gang,” “Another Saturday Night” and “Cupid.” “A Change Is Gonna Come,” released following his untimely death, is regarded as the anthem for the civil rights movement. These timeless hits have been covered by musicians from Aretha Franklin to Van Morrison and Otis Redding to John Lennon, securing his lasting legacy. This show is suitable for most audiences.

Theatre Raleigh Frequently Asked Questions FAQ

Theatre Raleigh is at 6638 Old Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC.

Theatre Raleigh is professional, non-profit theatre company based in Raleigh, North Carolina. It grew out of the original “Hot Summer Nights at the Kennedy” Series, begun in 2005 by K.D. Kennedy Jr. and his son, Michael Kennedy. The series operated out of the K.D. and Sara Lynn Kennedy Theatre, a 133-seat black box space around the back of the Duke Energy Center performing arts complex. In 2009, Lauren Kennedy Brady took over the series from her father and brother, building it into a year-round professional company that she renamed Theatre Raleigh. The organization officially incorporated as a nonprofit in 2013. Under Kennedy-Brady’s leadership, Theatre Raleigh has grown into one of the top theatre destinations in the Triangle, employing both local professionals and Broadway veterans. The company still continues its beloved Summer Series, but has expanded its programming to include a Family Series, a new works initiative, various concert events, and a number of educational components.
