In partnership with Chicago Opera Theater, Facets is pleased to present an intimate screening of the 1940s musical Cabin In The Sky featuring jazz legends Lena Horne, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and more!
Cabin In The Sky is regarded as the first Hollywood film to feature an all African-American cast. The film tells a version of the German legend of Faust, where the audience is witness to a classic struggle between good and evil.
The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Happiness is a Thing Called Joe" sung by Ethel Waters.
Live excerpts from Chicago Opera Theater's captivating cast of Queenie Pie will be featured after the film, as well as a discussion of the film.
