Before Etta James, Aretha Franklin, and Tina Turner, there was Ruth Brown, a trailblazing icon who ran the world of R&B. Her magnetic voice and spirited charm catapulted Atlantic Records to global fame in the 1950s - so much that fans once referred to the now-historic record label as “the house that Ruth built.”

A Rock and Roll Hall of Famer who won both Tony and Grammy awards, she paved the way for generations of singers. Her legendary story is told through Miss Rhythm, an intimate cabaret featuring powerhouse vocals and a swinging five-piece jazz band. Starring acclaimed actress Sheryl McCallum (The Lion King on Broadway), the tribute celebrates Brown’s story and indelible impact on popular music.
