San Antonio (October 14, 2021) –  After a long-awaited return, the original cast of The Divas of Eastwood take to the Carver stage once more in a revival of this musical revue celebrating the rich musical history and legacy of the Chitlin' Circuit; the famed network of black-owned nightclubs, dance halls, juke joints and theaters that nurtured African American musicians, actors and entertainers during the era of racial segregation.

The Divas of Eastwood is set against the backdrop of San Antonio's own legendary night club, the Eastwood Country Club.  The club itself becomes a metaphor for the Circuit and the music, historic moments and legendary entertainers that are its legacy, including other iconic San Antonio venues the Keyhole Club and the Library Auditorium, known today as the Carver Community Cultural Center.
