From award-winning playwright Jocelyn Bioh (Merry Wives, School Girls; Or, the African Mean Girls Play), composer Michael Thurber (Merry Wives), and director/conceiver Saheem Ali (Merry Wives, Nollywood Dreams) comes an exuberant new musical brimming with magical secrets. Following its world premiere at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Goddess tells the story of a mysterious singer who arrives at Moto Moto, a steamy Afro-jazz club in Mombasa, Kenya. She casts an entrancing presence on everyone at the club, including a young man who has returned home from America. Will the big plans for his life-stepping into a political legacy and marrying his fiancee-be upended? Inspired by the myth of Marimba, who created beautiful songs from her heartbreak, Goddess is a rousing tale of romance, the supernatural, and the quest of stepping into one's true identity.
