Written and performed by Cheryl Howard and directed by Ian Streicher, the "unforgettable story of Josephine Baker springs to life in this tightly woven play featuring several of Baker’s signature songs. The story goes from little girl to showgirl as we follow Josephine on her journey from conservative St. Louis, Missouri to the risqué cabarets of the Rue Pigalle, France. Howard delivers this tale through an array of fascinating female characters: Josephine’s domineering mother, Carrie McDonald; fellow chorus girl Lydia Jones; Ada 'Bricktop' Smith, owner of the infamous nightclub 'Bricktop’s in Montmarte…' And a raw, fearless portrayal of Ms. Baker herself in a series of defining moments: from the hilarious antics which rescued her from the obscurity of the chorus, to the humiliation of being shunned by a narrow-minded American public, to her life-long search for unconditional love."
