A Play About Maya Angelou is Coming to Broadway


April 7, 2019

The life of phenomenal woman Maya Angelou is coming to Broadway. 

The solo show “Phenomenal Woman: An evening with Maya Angelou” is being developed with the approval and help of her son, Guy Johnson. 

“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,” Johnson said in a statement.


The production is set to debut in 2021.
