My Lord, What a Night

by Deborah Brevoort

Looking for A Raisin in the Sun? We have changed our 2024 schedule. Please read about why here.

Based on the real-life friendship between famed contralto Marian Anderson and physicist Albert Einstein.

Marian Anderson is denied lodging after delighting a sold-out Princeton audience. When her long-time fan, Albert Einstein, invites her to stay in his home, the two begin a lifelong friendship. Watch as they grapple with their responsibility as an artist and scientist in a world plagued by racial segregation and a looming world war.
