The National Black Church Initiative is Sponsoring 10,000 Free Tickets to see the Movie “SOUL DOCTOR”

Rev Anthony Evans

Soul Doctor: A Joyous Broadway Musical

Soul Doctor: A Joyous Broadway Musical in movie theaters JUNE 13th ONLY!

In 600 Theaters Nationwide for 1 Day on June 13!

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, June 2, 2023/ — Fathom Events and Lisa Simone present the film Soul Doctor, the Broadway movie-musical about the ‘rock star’ Rabbi Shlomo Carlbach, and his relationship with the music and civil rights icon Dr. Nina Simone.

The special nationwide screenings of Soul Doctor will take place in more than 600 select theaters for one night only on June 13.

On behalf of Rev. Evans and the National Black Church Initiative, we are pleased to announce an exciting limited donation of up to 10 sponsored tickets for you to share with members of your church choir, Bible study group, youth ministry or any other members of your church. This national event takes place on June 13, 2023. There will be a one night only showing of “Soul Doctor” taking place in movie theaters across the country.

This film is a celebration of the historic, yet largely unknown, friendship between two musical legends, Nina Simone and Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. The profound influence that Nina Simone’s music had on the evolution of Rabbi Carlebach, who escaped Nazi Germany as a child and was raised in a strictly Orthodox Jewish community, is a powerful reminder of the transcendent impact that music and human connection can have on all of us. We believe that by providing a donation of tickets to the faith based community, we can build awareness of the bridge of understanding between the Black and Jewish community.

If you are interested in this donation of tickets, please contact our Group Sales Coordinator, Jackie Papier at [email protected].

With music by Shlomo Carlebach, lyrics by David Schechter, book and direction by Daniel Wise, and choreographed by Abdur Rahim Jackson (Alvin Ailey, Beyonce “Halo” music video and Superbowl Show), the film stars Tony Award® nominee Josh Young (Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita) as Shlomo and Nya (star of Cleopatra and the Broadway revival of Caroline or Change) as Nina Simone along with Charlotte Moore (Les Miz, ALW’s Wizard of Oz), C.J. Tyson (Broadway’s Wicked).
