An intimate dramatic and musical portrayal, Chetty's Lullaby probes the depth of Baker's addiction to drugs and to music and the toll it takes on his wife and bandmates. Based on true events, the play narrates the days leading to Baker's arrest and imprisonment by Italian authorities on drug charges, sidelining his career, and destroying his marriage.
Chetty's Lullaby vividly recreates this hip era of glamorous decline with live jazz from Baker's quartet. Combining the richness and depth of Baker's music with the humanness of his failure, the play delivers poignant insight into the price one pays for a life of pure creativity.
Jazz. Betrayal. Dreams. Drugs. Chetty's Lullaby is the searing dramatization of an unforgettable era and its most beautiful, tragic star.
