Gospel and rock will collide as Dallas-Fort Worth favorite Denise Lee embodies the incomparable “Godmother of Rock ‘N’ Roll,” legendary Sister Rosetta Tharpe. The play chronicles Tharpe’s first rehearsal with protégée Marie Knight in 1947, setting the stage for a historic tour that would establish them as one of the most significant music duos of the 20th century.

Despite their influence on Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, and more, Knight and Tharpe go largely uncredited for their contributions to rock and roll. George Brant’s play aims to correct historical oversights by providing a stage for Marie and Rosetta to share their story through powerful performances.

Audiences will witness the birth of a musical legacy that transcends time with a night of toe-tapping, head-bopping, and soul-lifting entertainment.
