Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical To Be Featured On TV One’s Unsung

Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical, will be featured on  TV One’s award-winning series “Unsung” Wednesday, July 1 at 8 P.M. EST. The creators Anthony Wayne and Kendrell Bowman, and co-producer Sheryl Lee Ralph, will appear on “Unsung Revisited” — a follow-up to the series’ profile of Sylvester, which is originally what inspired Wayne and Bowman to create the musical in 2010.

Touched by Sylvester’s bravery to be open about who he was during a time that wasn’t as accepting, Wayne looked into his music. Together with Bowman, his partner, they worked tirelessly, studying Sylvester’s music and musical influence to bring his life to the stage.

Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical (formerly known as Fabulous, One More Time) began a series of concerts at le poisson rouge in New York City in 2012. It made its Off-Broadway premiere in an acclaimed one-month limited engagement at Theatre at St. Clement’s (423 W. 46th Street) in September 2014. Since then the show has toured all over the country in places like; New York City, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. The musical was nominated for a 2015 Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best New Musical.

Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical is the critically acclaimed musical hit that celebrates the life of the Original 1970’s Disco Queen Sylvester. With songs like “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)”, “Can’t Stop Dancing” and “You Are My Friend”, this show tells the life story of Sylvester through HIS music and HIS point of view. Beyond all the trials, tribulations, glitz and glamour of his lifestyle, he was a symbol for being FABULOUS, but, also, a symbol for unapologetically being who he was.

Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical will play a special one-night-only performance in New York City at The Gramercy Theatre (127 East 23rd Street) on Friday, July 31st at 8 PM (doors open at 7PM). Tickets are priced $79.50, $89.50, and $99.50 (limited VIP – priority seating, post-show Meet & Greet and photo with the cast) and are now on sale via TicketMaster by calling 1.800.745.3000, or online at or
