About Sunday: The Musical

Sunday is a musical comedy based on typical Sunday services at the fictional Glorious New Life Greater Emmanuel Faith Tabernacle Church of The Living God In Christ Up On The Hill.

If there’s one thing every black person can relate to, it’s church. Whether it’s the uplifting songs, the charismatic preacher, the perpetually long services, the incessant gossip or the eventual backstabbing, every black person has a story about the church he or she attends. What we plan to do is take the funniest of those stories, lump them together with some unforgettable characterizations, then blend that with some dynamic new music from today’s premier gospel artists to create a stage presentation that is unlikely to ever be forgotten.
