The show brings to life Nina Simone’s original song “Four Women,” her tribute to the four little girls killed in the 1963 church bombing in Alabama. Fearing for their lives in a basement across the street from the church, the women – including Nina herself – represent four very different African-American perspectives. As she grapples with sorrow and rage, Nina slowly begins her transformation from jazz club chanteuse to the civil rights activist we revere today.
Songs include “Mississippi Goddam,” “I Loves You, Porgy,” “To Be Young, Black and Beautiful,” and “His Eye Is on the Sparrow.”
