Raymond James Theatre
163 3rd St N, Saint Petersburg, FL, United States

“Forbidden Fruit,” Nina Simone’s classic song about the temptations of Adam and Eve, is the inspiration for an evening of songs and stories about the things we should avoid – but don’t. The show features a mix of classic American songs like “Witchcraft,” “Love For Sale,” “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,” plus more contemporary songs like Randy Newman’s “Momma Told Me Not To Come,” and Phoebe Snow’s “Poetry Man.” The show features Paul Wilborn, and the Blue Roses band – Eugenie Bondurant, Frank Bowman and Matt Cowley.
