IT'S a HARDBOP LIFE on Hiatus/ 2020 Relaunch
The first play to feature an entire cast of Jazz musicians! Debuted at the 2004 New York JVC Jazz Festival and has since had several iterations (see Jazz Times). The bottom line is the cats are stuck in a snowstorm in Philly and need to figure out how they will get to their opening night at The Jazz Corner Niteclub in the NYC. Oh, and that wanna be singer ain't helping matters much!
GOD DOESN'T MEAN YOU GET TO
LIVE FOREVER on Hiatus/ 2020 Relaunch
Premiered in NYC starring American Idol /The Voice star Frenchie Davis and the infamous Reverend Dr. James A, Forbes, Jr.;
a gospel musician is turned out by a worldly songstress polluting his mind with that devil music (jazz) and other forbidden thoughts- especially about God. In the end, a little girl and a church test the limits of his faith. The audience IS the congregation and soul food samplers are served at the customary "3 o'clock chicken dinner"!
