John Newton possesses an artist’s heart and an adventurer’s spirit, but he is still complicit in one of the greatest inhumanities in history. The composer of perhaps the most famous song in the world, “Amazing Grace,” is heir to a vast slave-trading empire, and with that ill-gotten money embarks on a continent-hopping journey that unwittingly brings him to a more compassionate way of thinking. Along the way, he discovers the abolitionist beliefs of his childhood sweetheart Mary Catlett, runs afoul of an African queen with a slave empire of her own, and is forced to reconcile his profession with his relationship with Thomas, the enslaved man who essentially raised him from birth. Newton’s life of thrilling heroics and unforgivable sins led inexorably to the penning of these now familiar words: “I once was lost / But now am found / Was blind, but now I see.”
Tony-nominee Josh Young delivers what the Chicago Sun-Times called a “fleet and golden-voiced” performance as the conflicted protagonist, and Tony-winner Chuck Cooper breaks hearts as Thomas. The epic production is the first professional work by Christopher Smith, who also composed all of the music not written by Newton himself.
