Multiple Tony® Award winning producer Garth Drabinsky's World Premiere production of SOUSATZKA is a new musical based on the original novel Madame Sousatzka by Bernice Rubens. Set in London, England in 1982, SOUSATZKA tells the story of a young musical prodigy (JORDAN BARROW) torn between two powerful women from vastly different worlds: his mother (MONTEGO GLOVER), a political refugee in a strange land, and his piano teacher (VICTORIA CLARK), a brilliant eccentric with a shattered past. These two proud, iconoclastic women must ultimately cross cultural and racial divides to find common ground, or else put the boy's bright future in jeopardy. SOUSATZKA features a compelling fusion of South African, Eastern European, Classical, Jazz and Contemporary music. It is emotional, humourous, exhilarating and full of hope, and deals with some of the most profound social and political issues confronting our lives today.
