Amazing Grace (the Musical) has returned to the Museum of the Bible after its 2017 debut. This original musical about “romance, rebellion and redemption” is again mesmerizing audiences at the museum’s 472 seat PureFlix World Stage Theatre. But you need to make plans to secure your seat now — this second run “grace period” ends August 18th!
You know the song, but did you know the story behind it was so powerful? John Newton, the musically talented son of a British sea Captain and slave trader, is on his own journey of self-discovery as a young man. Like many young men, he’s trying to come to terms with what is expected of him while balancing his own dreams. And all of that gets more complicated by the anti-slave trading sentiments of some close friends… and potential love interests.
In this iconic — and incredibly based-on-a-true-story — plot, Newton is conscripted, shipwrecked, taken as a slave to an African princess on the Ivory Coast, rescued… and reformed. And it’s the pain and the poignancy of the journey that shape him into the Hymn writer he became.
Period costuming, dynamic staging, and impeccable casting are just some of the reasons to see Amazing Grace. It’s theatricality, engaging storyline, and inspiring music (especially the emotional rendition of Amazing Grace with audience participation at the finale) will keep you coming back again and again.
ProTip: Did you know that museum admission is included for two hours before the show? So if you haven’t explored the Museum of the Bible, haven’t had enough time for all there is to see, or didn’t even know you needed to check it out — there’s no better time!
