Jazz
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—a middle-aged woman set on revenge.

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

Adapted from Toni Morisson’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.
