Join us as we study this new musical based on the life of legendary, South African singer and activist, Miriam Makeba. Written and performed by GRAMMY-nominated music sensation Somi Kakoma, Dreaming Zenzile takes us to Makeba’s final concert where she delivers the performance of her life, raising the conscience and the consciousness of a people.
Over the course of 3-5 weeks we will read, dissect and discuss the musical, guided by ArtsEmerson’s trained teaching artists, in preparation to see the live performance at the Emerson Paramount Center. This is a great opportunity to expand your theatergoing experience while meeting new people and extending your social and cultural networks!
ArtsEmerson’s Play Reading Book Club (PRBC) is a dynamic theatre literacy and community education program that provides unique and radical access to scripts, artists, and conversations within the theatre.
