Lyric Theatre – Josephine

January 29

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on January 30, 2022 at 12:00 am

Josephine Baker. The little girl from Missouri who became an original 20th Century icon. Based on the extraordinary story of Josephine Baker: performer, spy and civil rights activist.

But, almost 50 years after her death, Café Josephine, a down-at-heel New York diner dedicated to her memory, faces closure.  Nobody remembers Josephine, who she was, what she did, what she stood for.

And she just can’t allow that.

With a sultry, Harlem Renaissance-inspired score, spring-heeled Charleston dancing and a hatful of historical figures, Josephine blurs the real with the imagined as we follow one woman’s journey from the slums of St Louis via the bright lights of Paris and into the hearts of the world.

There will be performances at 11.00am and 1.00pm on both days.
