What's "Simply, Ella" all about?
This fascinating Rhythmic musical play production returns to
the Indy stage once again to tell the life story of the First Lady of Jazz – Ms. ELLA FITZGERALD! This show is filled with songs of yester-year and will
make you want to swing, boogie, Lindy hop and jitterbug to the bee-bop sounds
of a stellar musical band right from your seats! “SIMPLY, ELLA”, presented by the Genesis
Theatre Company, stars Indy’s own Ms. Sandy Lomax, the Iibada Dance Company and
some of Indy’s most talented Actors and Musicians – who all help to return this one
of a kind entertaining show to the stage! Travel back to November
21, 1934 when a young Ella Fitzgerald (played by Kyla Archey) would enter her
name into the drawing for a chance to perform at Amateur Night on the world
famous stage of the historic Apollo Theatre. Witness the people in Ella
Fitzgerald’s life who all had a hand in helping to propel her to the sweet
status of stardom! Hear songs like “It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got
That Swing, Fascinating Rhythm, The Lady is a Tramp” and many, many more!
The smooth lyrical tones of Ms. Sandy Lomax – who stars as Ella Fitzgerald, is
sure to “simply take your heart away” – and her performance is second to
none! “SIMPLY, ELLA” is a family friendly show (please, no children under age 5) and will be talked about for years to come! Local and
Stellar Talent incorporates this exciting and moving Musical as this original
production returns for an encore performance to the city of Indianapolis for
one last time! Brown-Webster has assembled an exceptional cast filled
with some of Indy’s finest Actors, Singers and Musicians to tell this story –
and in honor of Jazz Appreciation Month - You Don’t want to miss
“Simply, Ella” – A Moving Musical Tribute to
Ms. Ella Fitzgerald”.
