Bringing fierce guitar playing and swing to gospel music, Sister Rosetta Tharpe was a legend in her time and a huge influence on Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix and Ray Charles. Marie and Rosetta chronicles her first rehearsal with a young protégée, Marie Knight, as they prepare to embark on a tour that would establish them as one of the great duos in musical history.
“It is so rare for a play about the inner lives of black women to center on their intimacy and not world politics or degradation that the very fact of George Brant’s loving two-character script is refreshing.” – The New Yorker
Casting: MARIE KNIGHT
SISTER ROSETTA THARPE is already cast.
MARIE KNIGHT - an African American woman in her 20’s. A more traditional alto gospel singer, plays staid piano. (Piano is played by a musician off-stage, NOT by the actor). Gorgeous, on her way to being a spiritual star.
