You might not know his name, but you know his music: “Personality”, “Lawdy Miss Clawdy”, “Stagger Lee”. From humble beginnings in Louisiana, Lloyd Price overcame incredible obstacles on his way to a revolutionary career. He was the first teenager to sell over a million records. His songs shattered the racial divide in music. His tunes were recorded by Elvis, Aretha, Little Richard, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Amy Winehouse and more. Lloyd Price was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 — this musical celebrates his life and legacy.

“Sheldon Epps’ production goes big; an ensemble large enough to fill the stage, huge talent, and lots of high energy dance numbers from Edgar Godineaux. Personality is a fantastic new musical that will keep Lloyd’s life and music on our minds for decades to come.”  (Talkin’ Broadway)
