Jazz

A theatrical composition, whose characters reveal their own rhythms

Adapted by Nambi E. Kelley
Based on the book by Toni Morrison

Directed by Awoye Timpo
Music by Marcus Shelby

Harlem, 1926. The city overflows with Jazz. Folks move with musicality, and speak rhythms, and in the heart of it all is Violet.

Her husband’s affair with a beautiful young woman sets off a series of violent events and unforgivable acts.

Adapted from Toni Morrison’s stunning novel and musically underscored by Bay Area jazz musician Marcus Shelby—Jazz is a theatrical composition.

Peeling back, layered accounts and alternating perspectives expose ultimately sympathetic characters, who—like the growing New York neighborhood and the winding woods of their youth—reveal their own rhythms.

See Window on the Work at Mill Valley Public Library, Tuesday, April 16 for a behind the scenes discussion of this production.
