Newman Jr. plays Preacher Oedipus in this soaring, poetic celebration of transcendence and the fragility of life, which won the Obie for Best Musical in 1984 and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for Best Drama in 1985.

Performed with the Women’s Ecumenical Choir of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Alexandria, Va.
