With the ground-shaking thunder of a revival meeting and an electrifying gospel and blues score, The Gospel at Colonus is an exuberant re-telling of Sophocles’ Oedipus at Colonus.  Featuring soaring voices, thrilling music, and powerful dance, the musical is set in the context of a black Pentecostal service.

As one of the most powerful, soul-stirring shows in theater history, this production follows the 2,400 year old myth of Oedipus’ at the end of his life, highlighting themes of forgiveness, redemption, life and love. With the lively musical performances and dance to gospel and blues scores, The Gospel at Colonus is a riveting experience from beginning to end.

Conceived, adapted, and directed by MacArthur Genius Grant winner Lee Breuer, with music composed, arranged, and directed by Academy Award nominee Bob Telson, this is a one-of-a-kind show featuring more than forty powerhouse voices.
