The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963
The Kennedy Center Eisenhower Theater
25% Off Select Dates: March 15 - 24, 2019

World premiere Kennedy Center commission

Meet the Watsons of Flint, Michigan: Momma, Dad, little sister Joetta, big brother Byron, and ten-year-old Kenny. When Byron can’t stay out of trouble, the whole family piles into their “Brown Bomber” and drives south to visit Grandma Sands for the summer. But along the way, they’ll experience a pivotal moment in the Civil Rights Movement.
Christopher Paul Curtis's Newbery Medal and Coretta Scott King Award–winning book comes to life in a staged concert adaptation by Christina Ham with live music. Told through Kenny’s ever-witty perspective, The Watsons Go to Birmingham–1963 captures hilarious family antics alongside poignant observations of Birmingham’s tragic church bombing. Experience the beloved story of a family’s bond and endurance amidst one of the darkest periods in America’s history.
Most enjoyed by age 9 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
The cast will feature Tichina Arnold (CBS' The Neighborhood) as Wilona Watson, J. Bernard Calloway (Memphis) as Daniel Watson, Chad Coleman (The Wire) as Narrator Kenny & Other Broadcast Voices, Dante Myles Hoagland (The Last O.G.) as Kenneth “Kenny” Bernard Watson, Tony Award® nominee Hailey Kilgore (Once on This Island) as Joetta “Joey” Watson, Isabell Monk O’Connor (The Gospel at Colonus) as Grandma Sands, Nova Y. Payton (the Kennedy Center’s Broadway Center Stage: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) as The Voice, and Justin Weaks (the Kennedy Center’s Long Way Down) as Byron Watson.
This event is part of The Human Journey, a collaboration between the Kennedy Center, National Geographic Society, and the National Gallery of Art.
