The ORACLE, who will be channeling Nina Simone says, "You will love the show. I know my fellow thespians, singers and dancers are having as much fun as I discovering their Literary Great Past and Present. I do hope everyone takes advantage of this awesome opportunity to learn something new about someone you only heard about in school or on the radio."
