Broadway’s Amazing Grace The Musical is Headed for the Keith-Albee

HUNTINGTON, WV – While humming the “hymn of hymns”, “Amazing Grace”, have you ever wondered what inspired the beloved lyrics? Wonder no more! Broadway’s Amazing Grace The Musical will be taking the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center stage on Tuesday, February 20 at 7:30 p.m

Amazing Grace the Musical tells the awe-inspiring true story of John Newton, a former slave ship owner who joins the abolition movement, and the journey that inspires the anthem of hope and redemption.

John finds himself facing uncertain times. He is conflicted about whether to follow his father’s footsteps and pursue the family business, or whether to embrace the more compassionate views of his childhood sweetheart. John sets out to journey on the high seas, accompanied by his slave Thomas. When that perilous voyage finds him in his darkest hour, a moment of self-realization inspires a blazing hope in John that guides him home. A tale of romance, rebellion, and redemption, Amazing Grace The Musical captures the spirit of history’s sweetest and most powerful sound: freedom.
