    Audiences are transported back in time with Broadway star Syndee Winters (Hamilton, The Lion King, Pippin) in her one-woman show. “LENA: A Moment with a Lady,” uses powerful vocals and a rich story line to share the most pivotal moments in Lena Horne’s life. In the 1940s and '50s, Ms. Horne topped the charts with hit songs like "Stormy Weather" and "The Lady Is a Tramp," and starred in numerous films. Recognized as an influential African-American pioneer in entertainment, she broke new ground when she signed with MGM studios and became one of the first artists to break the color line. Accompanied by a jazz quintet, Syndee will perform many of Lena’s most popular tunes in her telling of this wonderful artist and civil rights leader’s story.
