The month on the Main Stage brings a return of our longtime tradition of urban stage plays. ‘The Cross And The Light’, running April 11-13, is a moving theatrical and musical journey through Christ’s Passion, Death, and Resurrection. ‘Perilous Times’ (April 17-20) is an extraordinary real-life story of a young man and his journey from slick city street life,through turmoil and tribulations and finally a transformation that will forever change his life. No spoilers here – you have to experience these works yourself to learn the full story and feel the messages resonate.
Comedian/actorDeRay Davis (from ’21 Jump Street’) brings his hour long ‘Power Play’ to the Main Stage on 4/26 – you know him from countless characters from Kanye’s‘The Boondocks’ and Adult Swim’s ‘Black Dynamite’ – this guy has his finger on the pulse and will send you out with laughs that last for days.
Some steady favorites round out the Jazz Café calendar – ‘Crack ‘Em Up Wednesdays’on 4/23 and ‘Detroit Tonight Live with ML Liebler’ on 4/24, followed by a great CD release party for local musician Chris Emmerson on April 25.
