Alexandria performs as Key in ZORA on My Mind

 

Zora on My Mind is a jazz/blues chamber musical that writes the story of Key, a woman Zora would want to see. Key, a fiercely independent and strong-minded Black woman, runs her own businesses - a one-chair beauty shop and an inherited boarding house. When shoe shine salesman Malik rents a room in Key's place, the two of them change up the story. Two female interlocutors, Sophie, and Draft want to author the character's journeys, but the spirit of Zora thrives. The work is inspired by Zora Neale Hurston's essays "Characteristics of Negro Expression" and "How it Feels to be Colored Me".
