If you loved Hamilton, this new musical at Arena Stage in Washington, DC should not be missed.

With hauntingly beautiful music by Grammy award winning artist Marcus Hummon, the life of Frederick Douglass is brought to life in a way never before seen. American Prophet not only gives new perspectives to the relationships Douglass had with Abraham Lincoln, John Brown, and William Lloyd Garrison, it focuses on the long ignored role that his wife, Anna Murray Douglass, played in the struggle for freedom and racial justice that consumed both the lives. My review of the musical published in the Talbot Spy can be found here.
