Utah Shakespeare Festival: Words3 – Pearl’s in the House by Art Manke held in the Eileen and Allen Anew Studio Theatre (200 W University Blvd, Cedar City), tickets are $10. This small cast musical play focuses on the life of Pearl Bailey. A performer, writer, and special delegate to the United Nations in a racially-charged mid-twentieth century America, Bailey was a trailbrazer for African-American women and refused to be defined by the color of her skin. Yet, in Manke’s story, a talk-show host in 1987 questions many of her motives; so Bailey responds the only way she knows how—through her music.
