Little Girl Blue is a powerful and penetrating new musical exploring the evolution of American musical icon and civil rights activist Nina Simone.

Little Girl Blue is an exuberant new musical with a tour-de-force performance by award-winning actor Laiona Michelle. From her ascension as classical music prodigy to “High Priestess of Soul” to civil rights activist, this story taps into the legend that is Nina Simone with an honest and powerful portrait of her rich life and her ultimate decline. Feel the passion, joy, and pain of a woman adored by millions – then and now.

After a box office shattering, sold out regional premiere at George Street Playhouse, Little Girl Blue is poised to become a New York sensation.

“This insightful portrait of Nina Simone, an extremely gifted and complex individual, will mesmerize you.” - BroadwayWorld

“Superbly written and performed by Laiona Michelle. This show is a sure fire hit!” - BroadwayWorld

“Michelle… sings and plays piano well. She also sustains intensity throughout the evening, whether Simone is commanding the stage like a diva or feeling wistful or vulnerable.” - NJ Arts

“Guiding all of them is director Devanand Janki. He has done an outstanding job…” - Out In Jersey
