REGIONAL PREMIERE! The astonishing virtuosa Freda Payne brings the First Lady of Song to life with an elegance, resonant beauty, and transcendent voice that captures the immortal Ella Fitzgerald. The show follows Ella from her childhood struggles and her time on the streets through to her career as the preeminent jazz singer of her time.
