Sommers performed her one woman show I Love Being Here With You to two sold out houses at the Raymond F. Kravis Center in 2016. She recently appeared as "Motormouth Maybelle" in Hairspray at Actor's Playhouse (Coral Gables, Florida), for which she was nominated for a Carbonell Award. Sommers played "Matron Mama Morton" in the first national tour of the Broadway show Chicago, for which she won a Los Angeles Ovation Award. She appeared on Broadway in Ain't Misbehavin' in the Nell Carter role, and also in Chicago, Showboat and Platinum.
"These concerts will be an amazing kick-off to our upcoming season, which will include Miss Sommers in the extraordinary play Having Our Say, which will run January 11-February 3, 2019. We are delighted to working with her again to tell an important true story of our nation's heritage that recalls Harlem's Golden Age," continued Garsson, "and we couldn't imagine a more powerful beginning than this."
