Nina Simone: Four Women

Thursday, January 24, 2019 - 02/16/2019
Actor's Theatre of Charlotte presents NINA SIMONE: FOUR WOMEN by Christina Ham, running January 24 through February 16.

Velvet-throated songstress and N.C.- born Nina Simone hypnotized audiences with her signature renditions of standards from the American songbook. But on September 15, 1963, a devastating explosion in Birmingham, Alabama rocked our entire nation to the core, and from the memory of the four little girls that were lost in this unimaginable tragedy came “Four Women” — along with Simone’s other activist anthems like “Mississippi Goddam,” “Old Jim Crow” and “To Be Young, Gifted and Black.”
