Amazing Grace celebrates our humanity, individuality, and empathy, as well as our capability to be brutal, imperious, and cold when dealing with those we consider inferior. In this story about the man who finds himself in crises, John Newton (Tony Award® nominee Josh Young) is touched by a transformative moment during a perilous voyage on the high seas. At this time, he’s inspired to create a blazing anthem of hope that will finally guide him home. Amazing Grace offers audiences a powerful story about the promise of hope that defines freedom.
