Overview

EXPERIENCE THE LEGENDARY STORY OF RUTH BROWN, WHO PAVED THE WAY FOR GENERATIONS OF SINGERS.

Before Etta James, Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner, there was Ruth Brown, a trailblazing icon who ran the world of R&B. Her magnetic voice and spirited charm catapulted Atlantic Records to global fame in the 1950s—so much that fans once referred to the now-historic record label as “the house that Ruth built.” A Rock and Roll Hall of Famer who won both Tony and Grammy awards, she paved the way for generations of singers. Now, experience her legendary story through Miss Rhythm, an intimate cabaret featuring powerhouse vocals and a swinging five-piece jazz band.

 

Starring acclaimed actress Sheryl McCallum (The Lion King on Broadway), this electrifying tribute celebrates Ruth Brown’s captivating story and indelible impact on popular music. Get ready for an evening of powerful singing, no-nonsense humor, and the enduring legacy of a pioneer—Miss Rhythm herself, the one and only Ruth Brown.
