Life Story of Maya Angelou Being Developed For Broadway Stage

The life and art of the late legendary poet Maya Angelou will be made into a one-woman stage performance with hopes of taking it to Broadway. According to Deadline, Maya Angelou’s son, Guy Johnson, has partnered with producers David Michael Rich of Corstoria LLC, who was Angelou’s representative for more than 11years, and J. Todd Harris of Branded Pictures Entertainment to begin developing the project.

“My mother lived an extraordinary life,” Johnson said in a statement. “She brought a sense of passion to living and invested herself wholly in it. What she wanted most was justice for all human beings, and the freedom to experience joy and laughter. We hope to capture her joie de vivre. We’re going to include some private anecdotes that will be a revelation to audiences. I’m pleased to be working with this team in bringing her story to life and can’t wait for the public to experience it.”

Phenomenal Woman: An Evening With Maya Angelou will be a one-woman show drawing from Angelou’s writings, along with “some private musings that have never before been made public.” Theatrical rights have been secured for key works from Angelou’s estate and have signed Johnson to help develop the project.

Producers hope to bring the show to Broadway in 2021.

    Thanks for discussing your ideas listed here. The other factor is that whenever a problem appears with a computer motherboard, persons should not consider the risk connected with repairing the item themselves for if it is not done correctly it can lead to irreparable damage to the entire laptop. It will always be safe just to approach any dealer of that laptop with the repair of motherboard. They have technicians who have an expertise in dealing with notebook computer motherboard problems and can make right prognosis and execute repairs.
