A tale of romance, rebellion and redemption, the show follows one man whose incredible journey ignited a historic wave of change that gave birth to the abolitionist movement. John Newton, a willful and musically talented young Englishman, faces a future as uncertain as the turning tide. Coming of age as Britain sits atop an international empire of slavery, he finds himself torn between following in the footsteps of his father—a slave trader—and embracing the more compassionate views of his childhood sweetheart.

Wonderful performance! The singing, the sets, the costumes, the story, were all so well done. The audience loved it, as did we! It is a good story, well acted and very interesting. This is one show all should see. Our free night in NYC was a Sunday, so there were very few shows to choose from. We decided on an old classic, Chicago and it turned out to be quite disappointing. Firstly, the singing and dancing were great! Kudos to the actors.
President Obama ended his stirring eulogy for the Rev. Clementa C. The hymn, which many associate with African-American culture and the civil rights movement of the s, was written in the 18th century by John Newton, an Englishman who worked in the slave-trading business.
