Dionne Figgins Explores Integration in Trip of Love

In an ode to the 1960s, Trip of Love takes the audience “back to the decade that made a generation boom.” This rocking musical puts the songs of the ’60s front and center, with live performances from the orchestra and cast of 23. Chart-topping hits like “California Dreamin’,” “Born to Be Wild,” “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’,” “Blowin’ In The Wind,” “Moon River,” “Downtown,” “White Rabbit” and dozens more will be enjoyed by the audience. Tony Award winners Robin Wagner (The Producers, Dreamgirls) and Gregg Barnes (Something Rotten!, Kinky Boots, Aladdin) bring the unbeatable song list to life with sets and costumes inspired by the psychedelic style and fashion of the era.

Dionne D. Figgins appears in Trip of Love as Jennifer, a young woman of color living during the height of the civil rights movement, fighting to integrate the TV variety show world in Hollywood, CA.  Ms. Figgins will be performing the hit songs “These Boots Were Made For Walking” and “Nowhere To Run,” among others.  Ms. Figgins was last seen as “Diana Ross” cover in Motown: the Musical on Broadway.
