Sistas on Fire! A Newsical
By Marcia McNair and Anissa D. Moore

A musical revue that examines pressing social issues from an African-American female perspective.

New York, NY – The personal becomes the political when passionately-opinionated African American women speak their minds on Black Lives Matter, missing black women and girls, black-on-black crime, and male/female relationships in a soul-stirring mix of song, dance, poetry, and prose. The interrelated dramatic monologues range from tragedy to comedy in a “newsical” revue that examines pressing social issues from an African-American female perspective. Sistas on Fire! A Newsical uses theatre to provoke thought, encourage social activism, and build bridges that cross race, class, gender and culture.

The play opens at the East Village Playhouse from February 22nd to March 17th.

Sistas on Fire! A Newsical was written by Professor Marcia McNair and Professor Anissa D. Moore. Actress, singer and dancer Kwamara Thompson is the Producer. The music is by Marcia McNair, Natalie “Ne’Richa” Richmond, and Juson Williams.
