February 19 – March 8




Celebrate the story of a century with 103-year-old Sadie and 101-year-old Bessie, famously known as the Delany sisters. From the old Jim Crow South, to renaissance Harlem, and ultimately as a professional teacher and a dentist, respectively – their stories weave a rich tapestry of lives lived triumphantly. While making dinner (live, on stage) these two African American sisters tell us of the last century as they lived it – with true stories that touch the soul and your funny bone – filled with humor, faith, love, and family. You’ll just love your date with these feisty sisters at Lyric’s intimate Plaza Theatre.
