His Eye is on the Sparrow

From the hopeless slums of Philadelphia to the heights of fame, this is the powerful, stirring, and uplifting musical about the legendary Ethel Waters.

Born in 1896 into abject poverty, Ethel Waters became a Vaudeville success and a recording sensation while crossing racial barriers to emerge as a Broadway and Hollywood star. However, a reputation for being difficult and her own distrust of those who might employ her or love her  —  largely a response to the unspeakable horrors of Jim Crow America — caused her to lose everything and become a recluse, until she found new strength from a most unlikely source.
