A Wonderful World by Miami New Drama at Colony Theater

Mar 5 - 13, 2020

A world-premiere musical about jazz legend and singular American icon Louis Armstrong, with songs recorded and made popular by Armstrong, and original book by Aurin Squire, the multi-talented Opalocka-raised playwright and TV writer (This is Us, The Good Fight), and co-author of last season’s hit Confessions of a Cocaine Cowboy.)

A Wonderful World, traces Armstrong’s odyssey, the musical genre he helped define, and the complex history of race in America, from the birth of jazz in Armstrong’s native New Orleans to international stardom and the Civil Rights era. Squire focuses his musical drama through the prism of the women in Armstrong’s life: his single teenage mother and his four wives. Directed by Drama Desk winner and Tony nominee Christopher Renshaw.
