Lucky So and So picks up where Broadway's Sophisticated Ladies left off, intimately chronicling Duke Ellington's rise to World acclaim. His friendship with Duke's daily confidant and sister Ruth allowed Angelo Divino to write Lucky So and So with an insider's perspective. Each funny and poignant tale of Duke's fascinating life flows into the next perfectly placed song, creating a fresh, unique Ellington narrative. Vocalist Arienne Battiste, Music Director Howlett Smith and bassist Richard Simon each adds his or her timeless brilliance. Director Michael W. Fuller pulls it all together, making "Lucky so and So" a delightfully powerful, must-see performance piece!
