Playwright: Kirsten Childs
A life-affirming and funny coming-of-age story which follows Viveca, a bright girl from a black middle class family in LA, who dreams of becoming a dancer. Choosing to face the conflicts of a changing era in America with optimism rather than anger and revolution, she learns to reconcile the realities of racism and sexism with hope and faith - and by doing so discovers her self-worth. This musical is a sassy and satirical look at how women have been defined by others and themselves throughout the 1960s - 1990s with an original score of jazz, pop, Motown and lots of R & B.
‘Sharp and tasty... funny, poignant... captivating new musical’ - New York Times.
