We may be a little behind in reporting this but there is an AWESOME new musical coming to the Off-Broadway this Fall. MIGHTY REAL: A FABULOUS SYLVESTER MUSICAL is a musical that is written by Anthony Wayne and directed and produced by Wayne and Kendrell Bowman. It tells the story of Disco singer Sylvester who was an icon in the 70’s. Unafraid to live his life the way he wanted, Sylvester wore make up and dressed feminine at times, but most importantly he was FABULOUS.
This new play tells Sylvester’s story through music and monologues that are guaranteed to touch your heart, make you laugh and make you dance. The talent is lead by Anthony Wayne who is currently starring in the Broadway play “Pippin.” He takes on the role of Sylvester and sings each song with precision. The costumes were created by Bowman, who has styled several celebrities including Lauriana Mae and K. Michelle.
The duo has partnered with Stage and TV Legend Sheryl Lee Ralph and her D.I.V.A Foundation to bring even more impact to the play and co-produce the show. Ralph who had a personal connection is also raising funds for the play on her Indiegogo account.
