The opening act of the show was so fun and energetic, it reminded Fashiona of an Alvin Ailey performance. The dancers leaped, shimmied and strutted across the stage in African-inspired garb. The ladies had head wraps and scarves expertly tied to stay put during their acrobatic moves. Ruby Dee was absolutely regal as Ya Ya and kept the story moving between the elaborate musical numbers.
Prior to the start of the show, Vivica A. Fox was the red carpet host. She wore a purple dress, a gorgeous statement necklace and fabulous cage stiletto shoes all courtesy of Berdorf Goodman.
After seeing Vivica at several events around Atlanta in the last few weeks, Fashiona finally had a chance to interview her, visit her Urban Examiner page to see what Ms. Viv had to say.
