JAZZ: Fresh Ink 2011 | Illusion Theater
In just a few days (end of July) a few artistic emissaries from CENTERSTAGE (Gavin and Kwame, actually) will head to Minneapolis for a weeklong workshop and reading of Marion McClinton’s adaptation of Toni Morrison’s Jazz—further developing the piece for its January opening here in Baltimore.

July 29th at 8pm Toni Morrison’s Jazz
Adapted by Marion McClinton
