This week on L.A. Theatre Works, we present Oliver Goldstick‘s Dinah Was, starring Yvette Freeman.
About the play:
In a white fur coat, “The Queen of the Blues” sits on her luggage outside a Las Vegas hotel. It is 1959; the legendary star cannot enter the hotel without a white escort. So Dinah Washington, in her inimitable style, takes a long pull from her flask and starts kicking up a fuss. Yvette Freeman reprises her Obie award-winning performance in this passionate play that reminds us “What a Difference a Day Makes.” Features songs made famous by Dinah Washington and performed in the play by Yvette Freeman.
An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Paul Eiding, Yvette Freeman, Adriane Lenox, Bud Leslie and Darryl Reed.
