Play with Music on the ANDY BOSS THRUST STAGE
Back by popular demand – now with added music! Nina Simone’s velvet voice was unafraid to sing lyrics that cut right to the truth. In this powerful play with music, Simone writes the impassioned civil rights anthem “Mississippi Goddam” in a bombed Birmingham church, where she meets three strong women bound by tragic circumstance. Together, they sing their truth and rise triumphant with classics like “Sinner Man” and “Young, Gifted and Black.” Don’t miss these stellar performances by some of the Twin Cities’ best talent!
