This mythical tale takes place at the crossroads of “here and there,” where Marvell Thunder, a mysterious shapeshifter, challenges Glory, a blind songstress, to a magical duel on the Delta Blues guitar.

Performances were suspended March 13th due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our hearts are broken as it was such a joy to bring this show to such diverse communities and we were looking forward to continuing to bring inspiration to ALL audiences.
