The Other Woman
Devised and performed by former Girl Overboard frontwoman Lisa Schouw, The Other Woman weaves together Simone’s best-loved songs and shines a new light on the legendary singer’s celebrated but troubled life. Extraordinarily talented yet frustrated by a classical music scene unable to see past racial prejudice, Simone’s passion, grit and unsurpassed originality saw her become a legend in the eyes – and hearts – of jazz and blues audiences.
Success cost Simone dearly: abusive relationships, financial loss, tempestuous outbursts, fickle audiences and illness. Schouw, together with musical director Peter Bailey, lovingly unwrap the layers to reveal Simone’s finest and darkest hours. They capture and offer a new take on Simone’s feisty spirit, vulnerable heart, and hypnotic stage presence.
Expect to hear classics such as My Baby Just Cares for Me, House of the Rising Sun, I Loves You Porgy and Four Women. And expect to come away from The Other Woman knowing and feeling things about Simone that you may never have known or felt before.
