A celebrated work about the legendary American musical genius, Sam Cooke: Forever Mr. Soul is a provocative play with music, and delves into the life and musical accomplishments of Sam Cooke. Sam Cooke: Forever Mr. Soul brings to life the spirit and talent of a legendary musical genius, leading audiences through the soul of Sam Cooke’s recordings, while recanting the tales of his humble beginnings and rise to gospel, then pop stardom, all ending tragically on December 11, 1964, in a three dollar motel. Starred Broadway sensation Lawrence Stalling as Sam Cooke.
