Event Details

Josephine is a biographical musical that combines cabaret, theatre and dance to tell the story of the iconic Josephine Baker, the first African-American international superstar and one of the most remarkable figures of the 20th Century. Josephine Baker was the first African-American international superstar and one of the most remarkable figures of the 20th century.

In this multi-award-winning biographical cabaret that combines music, theatre, burlesque, and dance, we follow Baker’s incredible exploits that were groundbreaking for her time and still incredible nearly a century later. Josephine Baker was born in St. Louis in 1906 and achieved only moderate success in the United States but became an international superstar after moving to Europe in 1924. She starred alongside white romantic leading men in films in the 30s, had multiple interracial marriages and homosexual relationships, and performed in men’s clothing before the term “drag” was commonly used/known. She was a spy for the French Resistance in WWII, a civil rights activist, and a mother to 12 adopted children. Her success often gave her the opportunity to live free from the racial oppression of her home nation, though she never stopped yearning for acceptance in America.
