Amazing Grace - Show Summary
Amazing Grace is an uplifting new musical arriving on Broadway in summer 2015. The musical premiered in fall 2014 at Chicago’s Bank of America Theatre, where it demonstrated that audiences leave this show inspired and moved. It tells the story of the creation of the song, “Amazing Grace,” which was written around the turn of the 19th century by a man named John Newton, who is played by Josh Young (Judas Iscariot in Jesus Christ Superstar).

Newton was the captain of a slave ship who converted to Christianity and became an abolitionist and Anglican clergyman. The show also represents the perspective of a slave named Thomas, who is played by Chuck Cooper (The Life). The female lead is played by Erin Mackey (Chaplin). The book, music and lyrics are all written by a first time musical writer named Christopher Smith, who was once a police officer inspired by the story of John Newton. He has since been developing the show for two decades, and he co-wrote the book with Arthur Giron. The musical is directed by Gabriel Barre (The Wild Party), and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli (The King and I, Newsies, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown).

Should You See Amazing Grace On Broadway?

Amazing Grace scene
  What Is Amazing Grace Like?
This show is a traditional Broadway musical, but it is unusual fare on Broadway today, given that you can enter the theatre and leave knowing you will be uplifted. In this way, it is comparable to Les Misérables, whereas many new musicals are darker in theme or deal with more satirical elements. Amazing Grace tells the tale of John Newton, who was a headstrong but musically gifted young Englishman, finding himself in the position of sailor and then captain of a slave ship.  His father is a slave trader, and he is not sympathetic to his ways. Instead, he finds compassion in his young sweetheart, played by Erin Mackey, who is not in favor of slavery. The result is an inspiring tale about a man who decides to take his destiny into his own hands, becoming an abolitionist and writing the beautiful and timeless song “Amazing Grace.”
