Pentecostal passion meets Sophoclean savagery in The Gospel at Colonus, a Greek tragedy brilliantly retold through the music and power of the black church tradition. While it might strike some as an unusual fit, gospel music – with its soul-stirring force and flights of unrivaled ecstasy – might be the only medium truly capable of conveying the full emotional potential of Sophocles’ Oedipus at Colonus. Blind, destitute and racked with guilt, the ill-fated Oedipus looks for a place to die. Could final redemption be found in Colonus? Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and filmed for TV with Morgan Freeman, The Gospel at Colonus returns to the stage in this production from Ebony Repertory Theatre starring Tony winner Roger Robinson.
