About this show

Follow Me to Nellie's takes place in the home of the infamous Nellie Jackson's, where a hopeless blues singer is looking for a way out, a brave freedom fighter is looking for a way in, and a house of downtrodden women are looking for a new day. In 1955 Mississippi, during the reign of segregation, the price of attaining their dreams may cost them everything. The play takes a harrowing look at those who risked everything so that all Americans could be afforded the opportunity to vote. . The exceptional cast features veterans of Broadway, off-Broadway, television and film, including Lynda Gravatt in the title role.
