The Women of Brewster Place


The Women of Brewster Place is an American television miniseries that was broadcast on March 19 and 20, 1989 on ABC. The miniseries is based upon the critically acclaimed 1982 novel of the same name by Gloria Naylor.[1] It was produced by Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Productions with a teleplay by Karen Hall.[2][3]

The miniseries stars an ensemble cast of African-American actors and actresses such as Cicely Tyson, Oprah Winfrey, Jackée Harry, Robin Givens, Lynn Whitfield, Paula Kelly, Lonette McKee, Paul Winfield, Mary Alice, Olivia Cole, Moses Gunn, William Allen Young, and a brief early appearance by a young Larenz Tate. The miniseries received such a good reception that it led to a weekly series entitled Brewster Place. However, it was short-lived due to low ratings.

It is frequently broadcast on TV One and BET.

The show's theme song was performed by American R&B singer Vesta Williams, who performed both the opening and closing credits.[4]

Gospel music recording artist Vanessa Bell Armstrong has a brief cameo appearance as the female soloist who is singing "Amazing Grace".
