It may be Presidents Day, but it's time for a Queen. A Queen of Boston, and a Queen of Disco.

It's Donna Summer. You've probably heard her before, perhaps "On the Radio."

And now, you can hear some of her best music on the stage. "Summer: The Donna Summer Musical" will open tomorrow at the Colonial Theater. We took this opportunity to talk about her incredible career.

Renée Graham, opinion columnist for the Boston Globe, and Brittny Smith who plays Diva Donna in "Summer," joined us to discuss her legacy.

You can find tickets to the show here.

This segment aired on February 21, 2022.
