Written and Performed by Shaina Lynn

BAYOU BLUES dives deep into the consciousness of a black girl’s pursuit to find air amidst the drowning waves of colorism in New Orleans. Having been nominated for the Fringe Sustainable Practice Award and the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award, Broadway Baby says "Shaina Lynn is also well-equipped to draw on her wide-ranging skills as a performer, moving deftly through various settings and bringing to life the various characters that had impact on her early years.” Shaina Lynn takes the audience through the allure culture of Mardi Gras. With spoken word, song, dance and rap she shares her story, based on true-life experiences. A tale of transformation and healing for all, Shaina's powerful one-woman show questions the current impact of colonialism and race on communities of color.
