Fiery Anthems from “The High Priestess of Soul”

The creator of some of our nation’s most powerful Civil Rights anthems, Nina Simone shook the world with her music. After the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Simone’s tribute song “Four Women” transformed her from gifted pianist to trailblazing activist, charting a new course as an agent of change and healing. This play with music shines a light on how she found her true calling and gave voice to a movement through impactful and inspirational songs like  “Everything Must Change,” “To Be Young, Gifted and Black” and “His Eye is on the Sparrow.”

“Entertaining, enlightening, and educational… a stirring portrait of a tortured artist yearning to have her voice heard.” – BroadwayWorld
