Nina Simone story comes to Salford

David Upton

The story of legendary artist and activist Nina Simone will take to The Lowry stage in Salford from January 30 to February 3 in Nina.

Starring Josette Bushell-Mingo and a live band, Nina—a story about me and Nina Simone is a theatre piece inspired by the life and music of the performer.

Taking in her political acts as part of the Civil Rights Movement in 1960s America as well as the struggles in her personal life, Josette Bushell-Mingo finds a parallel with the persisting inequality in today’s society, and questions how far we’ve really come.
