NINA SIMONE: FOUR WOMEN
A face-to-face musical evening with the fiery genius.
Nina Simone rocked the nation with “Four Women”, her tribute in song to the four little girls lost in the tragic 1963 bombing of the Ku Klux Klan at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. Nina Simone: Four Women imagines a conversation, often through music, between Simone and three African-American women from varied walks-of-life. Directed by Tiffany Nichole Greene, who is the current Resident Director on Broadway’s Hamilton.
“This is still a remarkable show in many ways – it is totally different from any revue you ever saw and, especially given this fine casting, it catches one of the great thinkers, activists, and musicians of the 20th century as she surely was feeling in that given moment in time.” – Chicago Tribune
