12/09/2019 10PM | GUEST | Karina H Maynard

Off-Broadway musical SHIDA, written and performed by Jeannette Bayardelle –

Set to a soulfully contagious score of rock, jazz, R&B, and gospel music, SHIDA is based on the true story of a young African-American girl who aspires to become a writer, tracing the ups and downs of her family, friendships, and love life – from the double-dutch court at St. Mary's Catholic School in the Bronx to a scholarship at NYU. Her dreams become sidetracked by hardship and loss until her faith and those closest to her combine to restore Shida's hope and give her a second chance.

Jeannette Bayardelle reprises her role as Shida, for which she won and AUDELCO Award for Outstanding Solo Performance. SHIDA also received an IRNE Award nomination for Best Solo Show in 2015. Her theatre credits include The Color Purple (The Broadway Theatre/US tour- the NAACP Theater Award for Best Lead Actress in a Musical), Hair (Al Hirschfeld Theatre), The Best of Both Worlds (The Women's Project Theater/American Repertory Theater), Rock of Ages (New World Stages), Sister Act (North Shore Music Theatre/Theatre by the Sea), Big River, Freaky Friday, Rent (US tour), Girl from the North Country (The Public Theater and the forthcoming Broadway transfer); and for film, The Little Mermaid III. Bayardelle's albums include I Know Who I Am, Praise Report and Transferable.
