November 5 - November 7, 2014
"Satisfyingly soulful melodies, delivered with a strong, Broadway-caliber voice."
TheaterMania

Book, Music, & Lyrics by Jeannette Bayardelle
Directed by Andy Sandberg 

 
Broadway veteran Jeannette Bayardelle (The Color Purple) returns to A.R.T. after 2010’s Best of Both Worlds with her inspirational one-woman musical, Shida. Set to a soulful score of rock, jazz, R&B, and gospel, Shida is based on the true story of an African-American girl who aspires to become a writer, tracing the ups and downs of her life. Her dreams become sidetracked by hardship until her faith and those closest to her combine to restore Shida’s hope and give her a second chance. Shida is a new musical in development.
 
This is a General Admission show.
 

Jeannette Bayardelle plays multiple characters and wrote the text and music for “Shida,’’ about a fledgling writer. More
