What’s the best medicine for feeling beat up by the world? Get ready for the outrageous, high-powered, Southern rock musical that tells the true story of “Boss Queen” Jill and her closest friends in Jackson, Mississippi, and how they learned to grab life by the sequins, feathers, and tiaras, to live their lives out loud, on their own fabulous terms. This new musical is based on the wildly successful Sweet Potato Queens books by New York Times bestselling author Jill Conner Browne, with music by pop icon Melissa Manchester, lyrics by hit country songwriter Sharon Vaughn, and a book by Rupert Holmes (The Mystery of Edwin Drood). There are currently six thousand registered Sweet Potato Queens chapters in over twenty countries around the world.
