ALI, the new musical celebrating the life and legacy of Muhammad Ali.
Deemed “The Greatest of All Time,” Muhammad Ali was born in 1942 and raised during the early years of television and the American dream. His childhood in Louisville, Kentucky, along with love and unconditional support from his mother (and later from his wife Lonnie), set the stage for him to become the greatest boxer of all time. Ali was a formidable fighter. But the toughest battles he faced were often out of the ring. The most celebrated champion of his generation was also an outspoken advocate for social justice and equality. His combination of courage, swagger, compassion, wit, and charisma galvanized people during The American Civil Rights Movement. His vision for a world without hate has inspired generations of activists who continue to fight for social change today.
