Fletcher Opera Theater at Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, 2 East South Street, Raleigh, NC 27601
Nellie McKay – a witty singer-songwriter, actress (The Threepenny Opera on Broadway and P.S. I Love You on film), pianist, comedienne and ukulele player – joins forces with the two-time Grammy Award-winning Turtle Island Quartet to present a kaleidoscopic view of the music of Billie Holiday, Billy Strayhorn, and the Weimar cabaret of the 1920s. Adopting the title of the beloved Strayhorn classic, they’re calling the program A Flower is a Lovesome Thing.
Pre-show discussion with members of the Turtle Island Quartet at 7:00 PM on the 2nd floor lobby.
