Josephine: A Musical Cabaret

Josephine: A Musical Cabaret

Sunday, May 28, 2 p.m. to Sunday, Jun 18, 9 p.m.

Before Ella, Tina, Billie, or Beyoncé – there was Josephine!

Josephine Baker was the first African-American international superstar and one of the most remarkable figures of the 20th century. In this multi-award-winning biographical musical that combines cabaret, theatre, burlesque, and dance, we follow Baker’s incredible exploits that were groundbreaking for her time and still incredible nearly a century later. So You Think You Can Dance’s Sean Cheesman directs/choreographs and Tymisha Harris stars in this dazzling retelling of her revolutionary life as singer, movie star, WWII spy, civil rights activist, and so much more.




“She should be starring in a movie version directed by Baz Luhrmann.” – RuPaul (about Tymisha Harris)

“Probably the closest to an evening with Josephine Baker as one will ever experience.” – Stagebiz NYC

“Critic’s Pick! Harris is a magnetic performer, strong singer, and high-powered dancer.” – San Diego Union Tribune

“★★★★★. Tymisha Harris’ performance is a tour de force. Josephine is a triumphant homage to a life worth remembering. Go see this one.” – CBC
