Last year the world celebrated Maya Angelou with a historic Google Doodle on her 90th Birthday. This year we celebrate 91 years with breaking news.”Phenomenal Woman: An Evening With Maya Angelou” is currently being developed with hopes for Broadway.
“My mother lived an extraordinary life,” Johnson said in a statement. “She brought a sense of passion to living and invested herself wholly in it. What she wanted most was justice for all human beings, and the freedom to experience joy and laughter. We hope to capture her joie de vivre. We’re going to include some private anecdotes that will be a revelation to audiences. I’m pleased to be working with this team in bringing her story to life and can’t wait for the public to experience it.” – Guy Johnson
