About This Show

Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, the show follows jazz musician and civil rights activist, Mena Bordeaux, as she undergoes a spiritual cleansing following the untimely death of her father. During a three day period of isolation without cigarettes, alcohol, or access to the outside world, Mena reflects on the journey that took her from a young piano prodigy destined for a life in the service of the church, to a renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement.
