Welcome Back:  Ms. Ella!

"..It t'aint whatcha do it's the way that cha do it"...
My Grandmother Beatrice always told me "Sherri Lynn, be careful WHAT YOU do, and HOW you do it!"  Not realizing the depth of her words until I was much older - I was ever so mindful to always try to do good things because I never knew just exactly WHO was watching besides Jehovah's eyes in Heaven!

Now, I've not always done the right thing, but to have the Genesis Theatre Company bring back "SIMPLY, ELLA" - A moving musical tribute story about the life/times of Ms. Ella Fitzgerald - Chiiiile I KNOW we're doing something RIGHT!

Simply, Ella - stars Indy's own Ms. Sandy Lomax and her swinging band (the Wreckin Crew).  We also partner up with the Iibada Dance Company as they serve as the Savoy Ballroom Dancers!  Don't miss this fabulous show and it's amazing vibe!  You'll laugh, cry, dance, swing and all that Jazz with SIMPLY, ELLA!

No...it aint whatcha do - it's the way that cha do it, and this time We're doing it even bigger!  Guess what?...what?  the Great-great nieces of Ms. Ella will be joining us for an encore presentation of the show on Saturday 4/25. 

So, hurry - get your tickets TODAY!  Because you just don't wanna miss SIMPLY, ELLA!

Greetings and Salutations!

Happy New Year!  I hope your new year is off to a grand and glorious start and is as well as can be!  

"When I was girl about half past 3 my Ma said daughter come here to me - she said things may come and things may go but this is one thing you oughtta know - oh "It aint whatcha  do, it's the way that you do it" and that's what gets results!

This is one of my favorite songs sung by the First Lady of song - Ms.  ELLA FITZGERALD!  And in honor of her 102nd birthday, the Genesis Theatre Company is proud to present "SIMPLY, ELLA!" - A Musical Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, starring Indy's own:  The incomparable Ms. Sandy Lomax as Ella Fitzgerald!  

Sway to the tunes of yester-year as Ms. Sandy belts out the smooth poetic sounds as if you're hearing Ms. Ella herself! She'll scat-bap-bee-dap the night way with favorites like "A Tisket, A Tasket", "I Got Rhythm", "It Don't Mean A Thing if it Aint got that Swing", "Jersey Bounce", "How High the Moon" and many many more!

Don't miss this fascinating rhythmic show full of song and dance with numbers like the Jitterbug, and the Lindy Hop.
SIMPLY, ELLA is simply delightful and simply not to be missed!   

See you at the show!
