NICK'S FLAMINGO GRILL

 

By Phillip DePoy
Directed by Tinashe Kajese-Bolden
Musical Direction by Tyrone Jackson
Original songs by Phillip DePoy and Tyrone Jackson

Two friends, ex-WWII GI's turned jazz musicians, have had great success

performing in Paris nightclubs for the past 10 years.  Convinced that their

mixed-race act will also be a hit in the U.S., they decide to return home. 

To 1950s Georgia. Inspired by the true story of the first integrated nightclub

in Atlanta and featuring ten original jazz songs in the style of the era,

Nick's Flamingo Grill is a story of hope and brotherly love.  It's not easy

to build a palace of peace and harmony.  The trick is to keep trying.
