Rise and Shine and Redeem

No, this isn’t the Kate Chopin novel you struggled through in high school English. The Awakening at The Majestic Theatre is a story of feminism and overcoming pretense. A theatrical experience from The Fashion Opera, this story of legendary diva Vanity Black follows her as she reconciles the ideals of beauty for a black woman. It tears down stereotypes and shines a light on the role we all play in creating double standards. The audience is invited to join the diva on this journey of self-reflection and redemption when this elaborate show fills the Majestic Theatre, 1925 Elm St., at 4 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $35 at the door and $20 in advance at thefashionopera.com.
