The Sensational Josephine Baker
Emerging Artists Theatre presents the Off-Broadway Premiere of
The Sensational Josephine Baker by Cheryl Howard

Directed by Ian Streicher

September 7th thru October 3rd, 2010

The Sensational Josephine Baker by African American first-time playwright Cheryl Howard is a one-woman tour de force. Howard gives us the unforgettable life story of the one and only Josephine Baker in this tightly woven, mesmerizing play with music. The story follows Josephine as she journeys from conservative St. Louis, Missouri to the risque cabarets of the Rue Pigalle, France, from little girl to showgirl. Howard gives voice to this uncensored and emotional tale through a series of fascinating women: Josephine's domineering mother, Carrie McDonald; fellow chorus girl Lydia Jones; and Ada "Bricktop" Smith, owner of the infamous nightclub "Bricktop's in Montmarte."

With these and other fascinating female characters, Cheryl Howard fills the stage with a raw, fearless portrayal of Josephine in her defining moments: from the hilarious antics which rescued her from the obscurity of the chorus; to the humiliation of being shunned by a narrow-minded American public, to her life-long search for unconditional love... throughout it all she exudes an enduring passion to live life to the fullest.

The Sensational Josephine Baker is a rich, comedic, moving musical portrait of a truly unique woman - an inimitable icon of the Jazz Age whose legacy still blazes brightly.
