On October 11, a world premiere drama based on untold true events in the life of Nina Simone will begin performances at TheatreSquared.

Al Schackman, Simone's bandleader and 40-year collaborator, will attend the official opening night performance on October 13 and join in on guitar for an intimate concert post-show performance with the actor Joy Jones, who portrays Simone.
