An electric new musical revue based on the turbulent life and rich artistic legacy of this American musical icon Nina Simone. Child prodigy. Jazz superstar. Civil rights activist. Political exile. Nina Simone was all of these things, and more. One of the true divas of the 20th century and a genuine musical powerhouse, she defined a generation and defied classification. The score to Simply Simone crosses genres from gospel to blues to Broadway to rock and roll, and features such definitive Simone classics as “I Put a Spell on You,” “I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl,” “Love Me or Leave Me,” “I Loves You Porgy,” “The Look of Love,” “My Baby Just Cares for Me,” “To Be Young, Gifted, and Black” and “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” and many more!
