Join us for an entertainment experience you will not forget! This brand new live stage production is premiering in Alexandria, Virginia as the first stop on a planned National tour, and the timing could not be better! American Spirit takes us back to the 1960s and reflects on how five individuals worked to bring our country together in the most trying times. There was intense racial strife and a nuclear showdown. But unlike the politicians, media, and celebrities of today, those in a position to make a difference chose to unite rather than to divide. Politicians spoke words of inclusiveness and a spiritual leader suffered incredible indignities, but never related the actions of a few to an entire race. The music industry and its performances were writing and singing music to appeal to all. You will hear the incredible powerful words as they were actually spoken by John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King , Jr. and Robert Kennedy during the times of national crises. In addition, you will be transported back in time for three live tributes to actual concerts: Motown's 1963 "Motortown Revue" at the Apollo Theater. Frank Sinatra and Count Basie's "Concert of the Century" at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas in 1966, and to the Fox Theater in Detroit for Motown's final "Motortown Revue" in 1968. Hear over 40 songs that you know and love all performed live in upbeat, fast-paced medleys by our incredibly talented cast of musicians. Your emotions will run the gamut, but you will never experience another show where you will be dancing in your seat one minute, and bought to tears the next.
