Horizon TheatreKnown worldwide for his artistic vision which guided Jomandi Productions through its own golden age of African American theater, Tom Jones is headed back to Atlanta for the revival of his production, Three Sistahs. Running July 15 to August 28 at the Horizon Theater in Little Five Points, Jones once again directs the new blues and pop musical about sibling affection and family ties.

The intimate story of the Bradshaw sisters (Olive, Marsha and Irene) unfolds in the autumn of 1969 as they have arrived to say good-bye to their childhood home. Sparks fly between these sisters as they share wine, memories, dreams and secrets. Ultimately, during their last night in their childhood home, Three Sistahs must determine what family now means to them.

 “This piece tells the story of so many women who discover they have lost their voice in life,” states Jones. “It’s about three sisters stepping up to find themselves in the midst of heartache. They learn to triumph over their tragedy by reconnecting on a multitude of levels with one another.”

Created by Janet Price, Jones penned the play’s book and lyrics and musical director, William Hubbard, composed the work. The dynamic trio anchoring.

Three Sistahs includes Bernardine Mitchell and Crystal Fox reviving their roles from 2006 alongside Amber Iman, last seen at Horizon Theatre in the 2010 summer smash hit Shakin’ the Mess Outta Misery.
