About this show

It's a life lived out loud in this exhilarating musical about "The First Lady of Song," Ella Fitzgerald. This theatrical event weaves myth, memory and music as it tells the uplifting and poignant story of one of the greatest jazz vocalists of 20th century music. It's 1966, and the fabled songstress is preparing for one of the most important concerts of her career. As she jams with the musicians (including famed trumpeter Louis Armstrong) and gets ready to meet the audience, Fitzgerald reflects on her life, her secrets and the love of music that made her soar. Featuring two dozen legendary hits including "Night and Day," and "It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)," you'll fall in love all over again with the magic and soul of Ella Fitzgerald!
