Following a critically acclaimed run at London’s Bush Theatre, Olivier nominated actress and writer CUSH JUMBO (The RiverJulius Caesar, "Getting On") brings her “tour de force” (Times) one-woman show JOSEPHINE AND I to The Public.

A “dazzling, exhilarating” (The Guardian) performance featuring swinging jazz and ragtime rhythms, this theatrical event directed by Tony nominee PHYLLIDA LLOYD (Julius Caesar, Mary Stuart, The Iron Lady, Mamma Mia!) interweaves a modern day story of an ambitious young woman with the fascinating life of the peerless, fearless Josephine Baker.
