About this show

It's 1966. At a concert hall in Nice, France, Ella Fitzgerald rehearses for a performance. For once, the great lady of jazz is not sure she'll be able to live up to her promise. She's just returned from her sister's funeral and she may have lost the last bit of family she ever had. But the music has healing power, and the queen of scat was never one to leave her audiences wanting. Hot music and a cool band spotlight the "First Lady of Song" in a sizzling production that serves up over two dozen of Ella Fitzgerald's greatest hits including: "A Tisket A Tasket," "How High the Moon," "Mr. Paganini," "The Nearness of You" and "It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)."
