"Paul Robeson", the Musical

Friday, February 5 at 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, February 6 at 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, February 7 at 3:00 p.m.

Paul Robeson is a musical and spoken portrayal of the world-famous scholar, actor, singer, lawyer, all-American athlete and civil rights activist. The show was written by the late Phillip Hayes Dean, and is produced and presented by United in Music.

Jason McKinney stars as Robeson, the African-American Renaissance man who rose to prominence in multiple arenas at a time when racism and segregation was rampant in the United States. Robeson used his fame as a performer to become a voice for people who were marginalized both at home and abroad. Despite a hugely successful career on stage and in films and international popularity, he was eventually silenced and his career effectively ended by prejudice and McCarthyism. The show sheds light on the life of this courageous, influential and complex man whose message remains relevant for today's audiences. United in Music's Christopher Bagley co-stars as Robeson's long-time collaborator Lawrence Brown. .
