Simple sure leads one complicated life. With a wife awaiting an expensive divorce, a girlfriend awaiting a fiancée’s ring, and an indefatigable weakness for the local goodtime girl, things could certainly be less troublesome. But when faced with choosing between temptation and responsibility, he doesn’t always pick the right path. Celebrating the soul of 1950s Harlem, Josette Bushell-Mingo’s production is bursting with heartfelt blues, gospel, R&B and jazz.
Set in a neighbourhood bar in Harlem Simply Heavenly reunites Clive Rowe and Ruby Turner as lovestruck Melon and bar regular Miss Mamie and Rhashan Stone as the hardworking Simple.
