Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, this acclaimed play features many of her most iconic songs performed live.

Apphia Campbell’s acclaimed play follows a successful singer and civil rights activist as she seeks redemption after the untimely death of her father. She reflects on the journey that took her from a young piano prodigy destined for a life in the service of the church, to a renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement.
This extensive national tour follows a sell-out UK tour earlier in 2022, and sell-out seasons in Shanghai, New York, Edinburgh, and in the West End of London.

  • “Moving portrayal of determination and survival.”
    ★★★★ Times
  • “Nothing short of sensational… will make you cheer for her, smile with her and then sting your eyes with tears”
    ★★★★★ Broadway Baby
