About

In honor of Black History Month, Flushing Town Hall presents its Black History Trilogy, a three-part series of outstanding Broadway performers showcasing the music and speeches of influential African-American artists, scholars, and leaders.

On February 18 at 7:00 PM, the Trilogy continues with a presentation of “Divine Sass: A Tribute to the Music, Life, and Legacy of Sarah Vaughan,” featuring Tony Award-winning actress and vocalist Lillias White, who also wrote and conceived the show.

White, who performed in Dream Girls, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, South Pacific and Cy Coleman’s The Life, will highlight the music and struggles of the pivotal jazz figure Sarah Vaughan, who has influenced generations of vocalists with her unique style of expression and melodic phrasing.
