Check out this trailer that Ford's Theatre (Washington, DC) produced to promote their production of BLACK PEARL SINGS! by Frank Higgins, which opened their 2009/2010 season last fall. Directed by Jennifer L. Nelson, the play featured Tony Award winner Tonya Pinkins as Pearl and Erika Rolfsrud as Susannah.
InterAct will close its current season with the Philadelphia premiere of BLACK PEARL SINGS!, featuring C. Kelly Wright and Catherine Slusar, from May 28 - June 27, 2010. Featuring beautiful, live, a capella renditions of little-known American folk songs, BLACK PEARL SINGS! chronicles a powerful story of being a woman in a man's world, being Black in a White world, and fighting for one's soul in a world where anyone can become a commodity.

This is definitely one show that is not to be missed...
