Presenting a Feature Production of Henry Box Brown, a story of courage, strength, creativity, and a daring escape from slavery!
Gospel, R&B, blue grass and African American spirituals with an infusion of American folk music - weave together to tell this true story of an 1850ís Virginia Slave who shipped himself to freedom in a BOX! It is the American Les Miserables - where the triumph of the human spirit prevails through the sacrifice of black and white abolitionists.
