Jazz: Front and Center with Center Stage


Join Baltimore’s Center Stage cast for selected readings of the play Jazz, before its closing day at Center Stage on June 25. The reading will be followed by a talk with director Kwame Kwei-Armah and the cast moderated by Shirley Basfield Dunlap, ‎Director of Theatre at Morgan State University. Jazz, based on Toni Morrison’s exhilarating novel, tells the tale of Joe and Violet’s move from the Virginia countryside to Harlem at the turn of the century. They are young and in love. Twenty years later, Joe’s interactions with a young woman set off a series of violent events and unforgivable acts. The peeling back of layers and alternating perspectives ultimately expose sympathetic characters, who reveal their own rhythms.
