Josephine and I by Cush Jumbo
A Bush Theatre Production
Josephine Baker: jazz sensation, political activist and international icon
From the ragtime rhythms of St Louis and the intoxicating sounds of 1920s Paris, to present day London, Josephine and I intertwines the story of a modern day girl with that of one of the greatest, yet forgotten, stars of the 20th century.
Olivier nominated Cush Jumbo stars in her debut play, with live music and dance bringing to life the contemporary legacy of “...the most sensational woman anyone ever saw” (Hemingway). The award-winning Phyllida Lloyd directs (The Iron Lady, Mamma Mia!)
This delightful summer show will be performed cabaret style. Make a night of it with food, drinks and post-show entertainment in our Café Bar and Garden.
Written and performed by Cush Jumbo
Directed by Phyllida Lloyd
