Ethel is a glimpse into the magnificent and very complicated life of legendary stage and film star Ethel Waters. A versatile actress who epitomized the glamour of Black Vaudeville while successfully and lucratively crossing over into traditionally white performance venues, Waters inspired directors and singers and song writers with her talent and versatility. Waters was the first to record “Stormy Weather,” later starring in the remarkable Cabin in the Sky. Atlanta’s own Terry Burrell brings this amazing performer to life in a one woman play with music, band, and the larger-than-life wit of Ethel Waters.
