What a woman! Josephine Baker struts her stuff in “Bananas”

Dance · Theater

Just in time to celebrate Women’s History Month, the great Josephine Baker, as channeled by vivacious actress Sloan Robinson — whose pet project this is — will again rule the roost in “Bananas.”

The award-winning production (it garnered the NAACP Theatre Awards in 2009) recounts La Baker’s rise from the slums of East St. Louis to the grand stages of Europe, to international stardom, to French resistance fighter, to humanitarian, to civil rights activist. Two performances only.
