Jazz vocal phenom, Ja’Nia Harden plays Nina as she ventures into the night club performance moments of career, stunning musical theatre actress, Toddra Brunson plays the militant Nina and show-stopping vocal performer, Deana Rahming portrays the older Nina. South Florida Times writer, Michelle Hollenger wrote of the South Florida production: “SIMPLY SIMONE CELEBRATES LIFE OF SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS SINGER. Simply Simone-the Music of Nina Simone, an electric new revue based on the turbulent life and rich legacy of this American music icon. Simone’s song, Young, Gifted and Black, written in honor of the singer’s late friend, Lorraine Hansberry, author of the play A Raisin in the Sun, became a civil rights anthem that is as relevant today as it was then.” Join us as we honor the musical legend Nina Simone.
