Amazing Grace - 2014 - Chicago Tickets, News, Info & More

$51.50-$115.39

AMAZING GRACE is a pre-Broadway World Premiere musical based on the awe-inspiring true story behind the world’s most beloved song. A captivating tale of romance, rebellion and redemption, this radiant production follows one man whose incredible journey ignited a historic wave of change.

John Newton (Tony Award nominee Josh Young), a willful and musically talented young Englishman, faces a future as uncertain as the turning tide. Coming of age as Britain sits atop an international empire of slavery, he finds himself torn between following in the footsteps of father — a slave trader — and embracing the more compassionate views of his childhood sweetheart. But when a perilous voyage on the high seas finds John in his darkest hour, a transformative moment of self-reckoning inspires a blazing anthem of hope that will finally guide him home.

Brimming with emotion and adventure, AMAZING GRACE is an unforgettable musical saga that captures the spirit of history’s sweetest and most powerful sound: freedom.

Imagine my shock during the production of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at The University of Central Arkansas Theatre, 201 South Donaghey, in Conway, Friday, April 22, when the 'mean green mother from outer space' ate everyone! What??? That did NOT happen in the movie, but boy was it delightful in a sad, strange sort of way. The cast and crew had me dying...with laughter through the whole show.
