WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Directed by Andy Sandberg, Shida has book, music, and lyrics by Jeannette Bayardelle, winner of the NAACP Theater Award for Best Lead Actress in a Musical for her performance in The Color Purple. Set to a soulful score of rock, jazz, R&B, and gospel music, Shida is based on the true story of a young African-American girl who aspires to become a writer, tracing the ups and downs of her family, friendships, and love life - from the double-dutch court at St. Mary's Catholic School in the Bronx to a scholarship at NYU. Her dreams become sidetracked by hardship and loss until her faith and those closest to her combine to restore Shida's hope and give her a second chance. Shida is a tour-de-force for Ms. Bayardelle, who takes us through Shida's powerful, funny, and inspirational story, portraying multiple roles.
