FRIDAY PICK | Greta Oglesby returns in Penumbra Theatre Company’s “The Amen Corner”


Greta Oglesby made quite a stir when she starred in Caroline, or Change at the Guthrie Theater and then Black Nativity: A Season for Change back in 2009. Based on reviews of these shows, Minneapolis is glad to have her back as Sister Margaret in yet another Penumbra Theatre Company production, The Amen Corner. The production features music by a 10-member gospel choir from Minneapolis’ Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church and tells the story of a Harlem woman and congregation leader who struggles with balancing her faith and her family.

Coverage of issues and events that affect Central Corridor neighborhoods and communities is funded in part by a grant from Central Corridor Collaborative.
