A Regional Premiere
PERFORMANCES AT KARAMU HOUSE JELLIFFE THEATRE
Child prodigy. Jazz superstar. Civil rights activist. Political exile. Nina Simone was all of these things, and more. One of the true divas of the 20th century and a genuine musical powerhouse, she defined a generation and defied classification. Silky, soulful, and untamed, her voice will put a spell on you. She’ll melt your heart; she’ll chill you to the bone. But watch out! Cross her and she'll lash back, leaving you singing the blues! Based on the turbulent life and rich artistic legacy of this American musical icon, the score crosses genres from gospel to blues, to Broadway to rock and roll. Featuring definitive SIMPLY SIMONE chronicles hits such as “The Look of Love,” “My Baby Just Cares for Me,” “To Be Young, Gifted, and Black” and “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.”
