Marvin Gaye: Prince of Soul

July 16 – August 10, 2014

Sheldon Roden, one of Sarasota’s favorite WBTT troupe members, is reprising the role of Marvin Gaye in a new version of the show Marvin Gaye: Prince of Soul.

This not-to-be-missed original show begins in the 1950s at the start of Gaye’s career with Motown and follows its twists and turns until his untimely death in the mid-80s.

A gifted, innovative and enduring talent, Gaye blazed the trail for the continued evolution of popular black music from the powerful R&B to sophisticated soul to an intensely political and personal form of artistic self-expression.

Come see why Rolling Stone declared Gaye one of America’s greatest entertainers. And, why Sheldon receives great accolades whenever he sings one of Marvin’s songs.

People say he seems to channel the amazing singer
