Cafe Society – the legendary New York jazz venue, the first racially integrated club in the city, and the hottest ticket in town. From its idealistic anti-racist beginnings to its demise in the ‘Red Scare’ of the late 1940s, Cafe Society hosted stars including Lena Horne, Count Basie, and Billie Holiday, and was famously “the wrong place for the right people.”

Evan Pappas fronts this swinging show, along with stellar vocalists and a top-flight band. Directed by 59E59 favorite Simon Green!
