The play came alive when the actors sang but the dialogue felt stilted and the staging was very static. The emotions are heartfelt and the history is very important, but both are delivered unevenly. Still, it is worth seeing, even if missing some...continued

I thought this was a Broadway caliber production, both from a writing and performing standpoint to the light, sound and music production aswell. Really outstanding. I loved that they were calling it a "play with music", and that's what it was.

Loved it! Very well done and the cast was superb telling a story about a fascinating woman many people, especially young people, may not know a lot about. She was truly unique.

As someone that never got to see Nina Simone live, I appreciate experiences such as this one that allow me to experience Nina Simone through others. The performers were talented and brought Nina's story to life

A gorgeous performance with powerful themes: the music, the women, Nina herself, all through a vibrant, heart-rending lens provided by the consummate Valerie-Curtis Newton, Jennifer Zeyl's dynamic set, Melanie Burgess's spot on costumes, and more.

Excellent play that keeps us aware and focused on truth and history. My wife and I enjoyed the performances of all four of these talented black performers. We commend them for the message because the struggle continues into 2019.

Great script! Loved playwright's concept of basing it on Nina Simone's song "4 Women". The four actresses gave wonderful performances. Each had a unique, beautiful singing voice. Audience was totally into it, too!
