Off-Broadway and Beyond

In 1983, Vy co-wrote, produced and directed the classic gospel musical "Mama, I Want to Sing," which ran for eight years (becoming the longest-running African-American off-Broadway musical in history) and went on to play a three-year tour through the U.S. as well as London, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, the Caribbean and Japan.
