Sweet Georgia Brown


Written and Directed by Greg Williams, Jr.
Musical Directed by Marcus Haney
Choreographed by Dwight Bell 

The diva herself, Georgia Brown, has thoroughly burned her bridges in the music industry, including physically assaulting Etta James, cursing out Dr. Martin Luther King, and stealing the Tree of Hope from the Apollo Theatre. Determined to get back on top, Georgia takes up singing in a hole-in-the-wall juke joint, ready to do whatever it takes to be number one again. Show runs July 25 - 28.
