Currently, Jubilee Theatre is showing How I Got Over, a musical revue celebrating gospel greats like the Queen of Gospel, Mahalia Jackson. Viewers can enjoy soulful renditions of award-winning religious songs like “Precious Lord,” “Move On Up a Little Higher,” and “His Eye Is On The Sparrow.” 

Watch How I Got Over online through Sunday, July 26.

This high-energy show directed by Khira Hailey highlights and applauds the joy of gospel music and is presented in agreement with Nate Jacobs and the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe in Sarasota, Florida.

“This is a hand-clapping, foot-stomping, and most of all soul-stirring performance,” says Howard. Tickets can be purchased at Jubilee Theatre’s website and viewed for 48 hours after purchase.
