This acclaimed show tells the true story of Cafe Society - the first racially integrated jazz club in New York.
Opening in December 1938, the club was one of the first American venues to treat the great black artists of the era with dignity and respect and was the launch pad for legendary jazz stars Billie Holiday, Lena Horne, Sarah Vaughan and many more. 
Full of swinging jazz, blues, gospel and bebop, Cafe Society Swing follows the venue’s struggles and triumphs to its eventual demise in America’s ‘Red Scare’ of the late 1940s.  
Boasting a stellar international cast including Ciyo Brown, China Moses, Vimala RoweJudi Jackson and Peter Gerald this must-see production plays at Theatre Royal Stratford East for just two weeks.
