Black is the Color of My Voice

The Vaults · 27 JUN - 13 JUL

Following sell-out seasons in Shanghai, New York, Edinburgh and at London’s Trafalgar Studios, this Fringe First winning play with music comes to The Vaults for three weeks only.


Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Black Is The Color Of My Voice follows a successful jazz singer and civil rights activist seeking 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.

Age Recommendation: 12+
