Presented by Weathersby Productions at Aronoff Center for the Arts, Cincinnati OH

Oct 09 2021
Remembering James- The Life and Music of James Brown

Come out and enjoy this spectacular production starring Dedrick Weathersby and Twon Marcel Pope. You will laugh, sing, dance, and most of all, remember the music icon James Brown.

Remembering James is a 90-minute musical starring 2020 Broadway World Award-winner Dedrick Weathersby in the title role and Twon Marcel Pope as Bobby Byrd, telling the story of The Godfather of Soul, James Brown, from 1951-1968. Spanning nearly two decades of his monumental career, you’ll see how a divided country, the growing Civil Rights movement, and the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. shaped the artist’s work.

An eight-piece band accompanies the show, bringing the passion of his music alive. Songs include “Please Please,” “Papa Got a Brand New Bag,” “Cold Sweat,” “I Feel Good,” “Say It Loud I’m Black and I’m Proud,” and more.
