Event Description

“An artist’s responsibility is to reflect the times.”  Following the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church, Nina Simone shifted her talents to activism, creating some of our most powerful Civil Rights anthems.  Described as “riveting, relevant and oh so real” by Broadway World, this deeply personal play with music imagines how the iconic chanteuse forged her true calling–and gave voice to countless other Black women fighting to overcome stereotypes and racism.  Includes Simone’s most impactful songs including “To Be Young, Gifted and Black,” “Go Limp” and “Mississippi Goddam.”
