Set in the heart of Seattle’s Central District to the rhythms that shaped a generation, The Boy Who Kissed the Sky, is inspired by the early life and influences of Seattle native and musical icon Jimi Hendrix. The early era of rock ‘n roll music sets the stage as a young Black boy conjures his creativity as a budding guitarist. Guided by the spirit of music itself, the boy learns to find harmony inside the challenging noises of his life. Told with vibrant music and daring imagination, this play inspires us to dream big when it matters most.

*Commissioned by SCT in partnership with Alliance Theatre Company, this highly theatrical play by Idris Goodwin and directed by Tim Bond is funded in part by The Kennedy Center’s New Visions, New Voices to support the creation of new plays and musicals for young audiences and families.
