Pearl Bailey gets a musical. It's about time. Aside from her talent (Emmy and Tony winner and the first African American woman to have her own TV show), she was ahead of the curve when she married Italian-American drummer Louie Bellson in 1952 in a very segregated America. Written by C.B. Murray (Pearl's nephew). Directed by Ben Harney. Starring Jennie Harney as Pearl. Hopefully coming to Broadway or a theater near you. You can learn more here.
