Vivian's Music, 1969
Writer: Monica Bauer
Director: Glory Kadigan
Performers: Russell Jordan and Kailah S. King
Inspired by a real event, this adaptation of the award-winning "My Occasion of Sin" features two actors bringing to life a segregated city on the brink of a race riot. Vivian is a 14-year-old black girl just learning about life; Lewis Wells is an aging jazz drummer who may or may not be her father. Lewis takes a job in a music store on the white side of town, desperate to save his mother's legacy: The Dreamland Ballroom. Vivian falls in love with music, and struggles to piece together her link to the great Lewis Wells.

Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a more experimental theater piece "done differently" that challenges and delights; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that will have you humming. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.
NO REFUNDS will be granted.
