The Apollo Theater’s Salon Series in partnership with National Black Theatre presents WiLDFLOWER; a new musical that follows a rebellious, but devoted young mother who unwittingly meets a Sangoma, learns her ancestors’ purpose for her young son, and then must choose between the cost of obeying her ancestors or the higher cost of defying them. Set in the tumult of the early 90’s in both South Africa & the US, WiLDFLOWER features an exciting South African Pop & Gospel score to tell this epic tale.

WiLDFLOWER is developed as a part of NBT’s Soul L.A.B. Residency and The Apollo Salon Series, which began in 2016 to support innovative artists and works-in-progress projects.
