The Road to Prominence celebrates the wonder, craft and journey of black musical theatre artistry over the last 100 years. From Broadway to the West End, from the 20th to 21st centuries, diverse voices from the African and Caribbean diaspora have birthed a new sound which has both promoted and progressed musical theatre, adding rich cultural layers and eclectic edges to the beloved multidisciplinary artform. The Road to Prominence features an acclaimed roster of UK talent from the stage and screen celebrating the music of black musical theatre writers, composers and creatives through candid conversations and powerful performances. The filmed concert is directed by Dominic Powell whose musical Cases is featured in the concert, alongside works such as The Wiz, The Color Purple, Ain't Misbehavin', and Shuffle Along. The cast includes Zoe Birkett, Adrian Hansel, Waylon Jacobs, Aisha Jawando, Bobby Little, Maiya Quansah Breed, Alex Thomas Smith, Andrew Patrick-Walker, and Music Director Sean Green. This special filmed event will be available to watch live from over 100 countries, and is available to purchase in various currencies. The Road to Prominence premieres on Friday 26th February at 8PM GMT and purchasers have on-demand access for 72 hours
