Curtain up Light the lights

Nena wants to be a Diva--with a capital D--just like her mommy, who's a star on Broadway. She wants to sing and act and dance, but knows it will take lots of work--and lots of fun--for all her wishes to come true.

Tony Award-winning actress LaChanze and Caldecott Honoree Brian Pinkney present a showstopping story about a day in the life of a little diva with BIG Broadway dreams.
