Franklin Stage Company is pleased to present “Bricktop, Legend of the Jazz Age,” August 5–21, a play, written by Cathey Sawyer, directed by Rodney S. Hudson. Bricktop is the story of jazz, of African Americans in performance, of racial relations, and of Paris before and after WWII. Bricktop recounts her humble beginnings in Alderson, West Virginia through her career as a cabaret performer and club owner that took her around the world, made her the companion of royalty, a favorite of writers and musicians, and the “Doyenne” of café society in Paris.
