Regina Marie Williams sings Nina Simone
Dynamic Theatrical Vocals
BOX OFFICE 612-332-5299
Nina Simone’s velvet voice was unafraid to sing lyrics that cut right to the truth. From the iconic “I Put a Spell on You” to “Feelin’ Good” to the protest songs “Four Women” and “Mississippi Goddam,” her music was a personal and political exploration branded in the kiln of the Civil Rights Movement.
About Regina Marie Williams: Nina and More
“It starts with her eyes, transparent and luminous windows to her emotions. Whether with a baleful stare, or a mask of aching grief, Williams fills a character with a fierce authenticity. Then there is her voice, which can scorch with intensity or sing like an angel. Williams is always interesting to watch, even in small roles, because she makes her presence so enjoyable. Among her signature roles have been the lead in “Dinah Was” and the tragic heroine of “Ruined.” – Star Tribune

This lady of the stage leaves cataracts of applause in her wake at such nationally renowned venues as The Guthrie Theater, Penumbra Theatre Company, Mixed Blood Theatre and The Dakota.
