The Life of Maya Angelou is coming to Broadway in 2021


Renowned poet Maya Angelou has captured the hearts of many through her poetry, activism, and her outstanding personality. Her life has greatly impacted others and now it will be showcased on the broadway stage in the year 2021.

Ms. Angelou passed away in 2014 and her story will be turned into a one woman show titled “Phenomenal Woman: An Evening With Maya Angelou.” According to Essence Magazine it will be “drawing from the late Angelou’s many writings, along with some private musings that have never before been made public,”

Angelou’s son, Guy Johnson supports the project and is involved in it. He comments that:

“My mother lived an extraordinary life, She brought a sense of passion to living and invested herself wholly in it. What she wanted most was justice for all human beings, and the freedom to experience joy and laughter. We hope to capture her joie de vivre. We’re going to include some private anecdotes that will be a revelation to audiences. I’m pleased to be working with this team in bringing her story to life and can’t wait for the public to experience it,”

Maya Angelou once said “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

We can’t wait to see your memory come to life on Broadway in 2021!
