An evening of sassy soul..... Come hear Ella. Come hear Billie. Theater Owner’s Booking Association was the top booking agency for black performers in a deeply segregated era, and a contract with “Toby” meant steady work. Performers called it “ doing Toby time” because living conditions were so rough but still they sang their songs in true vaudeville traditions and made light of their everyday struggles. A Lady in White & Gullah Theater Production, written by Ade Ofunniyin, directed by Samelia Adams.
