SOUL: The Stax Musical highest grossing production in Baltimore Center Stage history

SOUL The Stax Musical surpassed 2015’s Marley to become the highest grossing revenue show in Baltimore Center Stage’s 57-year history. With stellar reviews, the world premiere tells the story of Memphis, Tennessee based Stax Records, its impact on the American cultural landscape, and the launch of iconic artists who created the foundation of what we know today as soul and rhythm & blues music.

Featuring stirring performances by an incredible cast, SOUL The Stax Musical features the music of such legendary acts as Otis Redding, The Staple Singers, Isaac Hayes, Rufus and Carla Thomas and others. Directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah, SOUL also represents his Baltimore Center Stage finale, as he moved on earlier this year to become the Artistic Director of the Young Vic Theatre in London.
