Event Details

To pay homage to Dr. Nina Simone, Lady Ode', an emerging playwright, wrote an original work entitled, "Nina Simone: In Her Own Words". The play is a musical/theatrical production. It depicts the life of Nina Simone, through a series of interviews and conversations with a few of her close and personal friends including Langston Hughes, Nikki Giovanni, Miriam Makeba and James Baldwin. The play leans heavily on the narrative elements of Nina’s story yet blends some of her greatest songs. It will be an adventure as we see the good, the bad, and the truly unyielding presence of this great woman.

This will be the first " Reading " of the play.

The first time Lady Ode' heard Dr. Nina Simone's music in 2005, she recalls how an involuntary tear rolled down her face.

"I'd never been so moved by anyone’s voice and lyrics the way Nina's voice and lyrics moved me. With her strong and unique vocal style, I knew I wanted to somehow be apart of preserving her legacy."
