The Dreams of Sarah Breedlove

Regina Taylor, who brought us the amazing and uplifting hit musical Crowns, returns to the Goodman with this remarkable story of Sarah Breedlove, the first self-made female millionaire.

Sarah Breedlove, the first freeborn child of emancipated slaves, had a mind for business and an aching for success. When her miracle hair salve not only wins over the hearts and heads of African Americans, but also the heart of an astute businessman, Madam C.J. Walker’s Wonderful Hair Grower takes flight. Following Madam’s financial gains with her business and emotional losses with her family, her story transformed the way African Americans were seen in the United States at the turn of the century.
