Theatre NOVA presents the Michigan premiere of this hit Off-Broadway musical celebration of the legendary Bessie Smith, whose life was as large and outrageous as her talent. “The Devil’s Music” re-imagines Bessie’s final electrifying evening after she and her band are turned away by a whites-only theatre.
This is a musical celebration not to be missed, packed with a trove of Bessie’s all-time hits, with songs like “I Ain’t Got Nobody,” “St. Louis Blues,” and “Tain’t Nobody’s Biz-ness If I Do.”
