Theatre: Black Is The Color Of My Voice....

Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Black Is The Color Of My Voice follows a successful jazz singer and civil rights activist seeking redemption after the untimely death of her father. She reflects on the journey that took her from a young piano prodigy destined for a life in the service of the church, to a renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement. 

Direct from sell-out performances in Shanghai, New York and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Apphia Campbell embarks on her debut UK tour. 


Really not much more I can say about this performance apart from WOW !
A one woman show full of emotion punctuated with her fantastic voice.

Hopefully this is a link to the rest of the tour.

Sounds good. The new theatre near us opens this week but seems to be mostly performances that are aimed more at children at the moment. I've booked a couple of things for April as they sounded good but there was a disappointing lack of this type of thing. If that doesn't change I think I will write and say I would like to see performances like this.

I'm sure it will improve once performers know your theatre exists, hard for them to include your venue on a national tour when they book them probably a year in advance. But definitely tell them the sort of things you'd like to see there.
