    "Nothing short of Amazing!" – ABC News

    AMAZING GRACE is an unforgettable musical saga depicting the conversion of John Newton – from a brutal slave trader to a committed Reformer and Christian – who would ultimately compose the “the hymn of hymns,” Amazing Grace.

    John Newton, a willful and musically talented young Englishman, faces a future as uncertain as the turning tide. Coming of age as Britain sits atop an international empire of slavery, he finds himself torn between following in the footsteps of his father, a slave trader, or embracing the more compassionate views of his childhood sweetheart. Accompanied by his slave, Thomas, John embarks on a perilous voyage on the high seas. When that journey finds John in his darkest hour, a transformative moment of self-reckoning inspires a blazing anthem of hope that will finally guide him home. Brimming with emotion and adventure, AMAZING GRACE is an unforgettable musical saga that captures the spirit of history’s sweetest and most powerful sound: freedom.

    AMAZING GRACE was chosen to be the first production at the Museum of the Bible in Washington DC. The production is currently running in the museum's state-of-the art theatre through January 8, 2018. AMAZING GRACE will take its inspirational message on the road as it launches its new national tour, the first production of the musical in North America since its Broadway run in 2015.This is your chance to see this new production at the Shubert at the start of its national tour!
