Whether you were a rocker, dancing queen or recovering hippie, the Naples Philharmonic is here to play time machine, taking you straight back to the 1970s. This trip down memory lane will take you through disco anthems like I Will Survive, monster rock hits like Bohemian Rhapsody and ballads like Isn't She Lovely. Break out your platforms and feather your hair, it's time to revisit one of America's funkiest decades with the Phil.
Direct from Broadway, the New York Post called N'Kenge "electrifying" in the role of Mary Wells in "Motown: The Musical". N'Kenge is currently performing to sold out performances at the Lunt Fontanne Theatre and she made her Broadway debut in "Sondheim on Sondheim", alongside Barbara Cook and Vanessa Williams. The production was directed by Pulitzer Prize winner James Lapine. In London, N'Kenge starred in "The Genius of Ray Charles", in which she made her West End debut.
