Starring Mary Wilson of the Supremes, Stormy Weather: The Lena Horne Project is about Hollywood’s first African-American goddess, from her reign at MGM’s “dream factory” to a fabled night club seductress and civil rights icon.


Stormy Weather is a living, breathing biography featuring rare audio clips, video footage, true stories and thrilling performances.
Stormy Weather is based on the celebrated book Stormy Weather: The Life of Lena Horne (Simon & Schuster 2009) by James Gavin, who also narrates this multimedia theatrical experience. Mike Renzi (seven-time Emmy Award-winner), who served as the musical director for Lena Horne’s show The Lady and Her Music on Broadway in 1981, created the orchestrations for this show.
