Cabin in the Sky - Off-Broadway

$35-$125

Originally produced in 1940, Cabin in the Sky followed Porgy and Bess in celebrating African-American music and dance traditions. The musical tells the story of "Little Joe" Jackson, a charming ne'er-do-well who dies in a saloon brawl and is given six months on earth to prove his worth to the Lord's General (Tony Award nominee Norm Lewis) and his long-suffering wife Petunia (Tony Award winner LaChanze), while resisting the temptations of the Devil's Head Man (Tony Award winner Chuck Cooper). Vernon Duke's score—which features the jazz hit "Taking a Chance on Love"—will be restored to its original glory for Encores!
