In their fast-gentrifying Harlem neighborhood, Preacher Henry and his wife Julia struggle to keep their congregation going in the face of development. When all seems lost, Henry asks God for help, and receives it in the form of an angel. But will this mysterious newcomer really help or make matters worse? Through it all, Julia must find her voice and the strength to lead their congregation through the crisis, reminding them that a church is not a building, but the people who inhabit it and the love they share. Featuring an original score by actor, comedian, and writer Titus Burgess (TV’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and a book by Burgess and actress, producer, and writer Azie Dungey (TV’s Harlem), The Preacher’s Wife is a can’t-miss theatrical celebration of family and faith.
Based upon the motion pictures The Bishopâs Wife produced by Samuel Goldwyn; The Preacherâs Wife produced by Samuel Goldwyn, Jr., and the novel The Bishopâs Wife written by Robert Nathan.
