About the show:
Fresh from its world premiere tour which included three sell-out performances, “It is Well with My Soul,” a new musical by Gareth Hides, announces two dates in November to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the sinking of the ocean liner the Ville du Havre, which prompted the writing of the classic Gospel hymn. The show tells the story of the people behind this beloved hymn: composer Philip Bliss, his wife Lucy, and of course Horatio Spafford who penned the lyrics.
At the end of the American Civil War, Philip and Lucy end up moving to the growing metropolis of Chicago, Illinois, to make a new life for themselves. It is there they meet lawyer Horatio Spafford, producer and publisher George Root, and preacher and philanthropist D L Moody. As Philip begins to gain prominence as a soloist and hymn-writer, temptation begins to creep in: how will Philip handle the temptations that come with his new life? And how will the Blisses handle the tragic circumstances of the Great Chicago Fire and the loss of the Spafford girls in the sinking of the Ville du Havre? “It is Well with My Soul” invites you to explore the Gospel message of hope, like an anchor for the soul.
In the storms of life, is it well with your soul? Book your tickets to see this exciting new theatrical production and explore this enduring message of true and steadfast faith in the midst of tragedy and suffering.
“A truly remarkable show.” (The Baptist Times)
