Critics are raving! Final performances of the musical event of the season.

The critics have spoken. A Wonderful World at the Colony Theatre “belongs on Broadway.” It is “flat-out gorgeous and highly entertaining.” The exhilarating journey of a man that overcame poverty and prejudice and redefined 20th century America. It is the “best original play South Florida has seen.” A World Premiere musical about Louis Armstrong, the American legend that broke every rule in the book.

Featuring songs recorded and made popular by Armstrong, and original book by Aurin Squire, the multi-talented Opalocka-raised playwright and TV writer (This is Us, The Good Fight), and co-author of Confessions of a Cocaine Cowboy. Directed by Drama Desk winner and Tony nominee Christopher Renshaw. Music arranged by Annastasia Victory and Michael O. Mitchell. Choreography and musical staging by Rickey Tripp.
