"In The Footsteps of Moses" the story of Harriet Tubman - Interactive Reading of Historical Drama
Harriet Tubman Goes to New York City!
Animated TheatreWorks a New York production company, will produce an interactive reading of Providence playwright Willis-Whyte's historical drama "In The Footsteps of Moses" the story of Harriet Tubman, in New York City on June 19 and 20, 2000.
Ms. Whyte, a New York native who is now a resident of Providence, RI
states that "This reading is only the first step in getting the show produced.
The full staged version of the script will happen in of February, 2001 and run through March, in celebration of Black History and Women's History Months. We've had such a great initial response to this project that there is already talk about the possibility of a move to a larger theatre and an extension of the show for an additional eight weeks."
The author also says that "Harriet Tubman is the most amazing woman you
can imagine and most people don't have a clue. Courage, persistence and tenacity don't even come close to describing her. Her commitment to attaining freedom for her people was unparalleled by any other man or woman in history; except for possibly "Moses" himself! I can only hope that I've done her story justice!"
The reading in June is open to the public, but reservations are
The readings are limited to 30 participants. Anyone attending these
readings will be given the opportunity to attend the follow-ups and/or the
