Black Is The Color Of My Voice

Inspired by the life of Nina Simone

Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, and featuring many of her most iconic songs performed live. Apphia Campbell’s acclaimed play follows a successful singer and civil rights activist as she seeks 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. This extensive national tour follows a sell-out UK tour earlier in 2022, and sell-out seasons in Shanghai, New York, Edinburgh, and in the West End of London.
