Cast from Philadelphia performance of RESPECT

RESPECT the Musical debuted as a one-woman show in Nashville, TN in 2003.  Soon thereafter, it became a four-woman musical. The ensemble performed RESPECT many times, and a second cast was engaged due to the overwhelming request for the show to be presented at different venues.

A year after opening, RESPECT was performed in Florida and was picked up by a commercial producer, opening professionally July 2004 in West Palm Beach, Florida.  It played 2 years in West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, and over two years in Orlando.  From there, it went to Boston, Cleveland, and Atlanta — and over 100 cities later, it’s still going strong!
