This production heads on an extensive national tour after sell-out seasons in Shanghai, New York, Edinburgh, and in the West End of London.

Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Black Is The Colour 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.

“Moving portrayal of determination and survival.”

★★★★ The Times

★★★★★ Broadway Baby

‘A compelling and heart breaking story, punctuated with bursts of song.’
