Ada “Bricktop” Smith may not be a familiar name today, but during the Jazz Age she seemed to know everyone, was always in the right place at the right time, and made things happen.  We hear from Gabrielle Lee, who portrays Bricktop in a one-woman show with the Franklin Stage Company. Director Rodney Hudson is also with us to tell about Bricktop’s international career.
