Q: Was there a specific reason why you decided to come see this show tonight?
A: (Woman) I heard it was incredible and I’m a little bit obsessed with the musical Shuffle Along, which I know is what got Josephine Baker her start. People who know me told me that I really needed to see this because it talks about this musical. I’m really excited to see that story told in another story.
A: (Man) I’m along for the ride, but also a big Josephine Baker fan. I recently got a children’s book—I work at an elementary school—that chronicled her life and I’m excited to see how the dive into it.
