Cush Jumbo Stars in JOSEPHINE AND I at the Bush Theatre, Now thru Aug 17
Josephine & I, written and performed by Cush Jumbo, opened on Friday 12 July and runs through Saturday 17 August 2013 at the Bush Theatre. The show centers on Josephine Baker: jazz sensation, political activist and international icon.
From the ragtime rhythms of St Louis and the intoxicating sounds of 1920s Paris, to present day London, Josephine and I intertwines the story of a modern day girl with that of one of the greatest, yet forgotten, stars of the 20th century.
Olivier nominated Cush Jumbo stars in her debut play, with live music and dance bringing to life the contemporary legacy of "...the most sensational woman anyone ever saw" (Hemingway). The award-winning Phyllida Lloyd directs (The Iron Lady, Mamma Mia!)
This delightful summer show will be performed cabaret style. Make a night of it with food, drinks and music in our Café Bar and Garden.
