Yes! Alonzo is performing his very own “B-Side Man” in October and November. In October on the 29th and 30th I’ll be at The Tank in New York City. Not sure of the time’s yet, but that’ll be coming along. And I’m also performing in the Charm City Fringe Festival in Baltimore in November.We (Wiffee Nicole and I) just finished having the artwork finalized by the very creative Christopher Jones (brownhornetdesign.com) who also currently produces work for the New Day Campaign.
This one is for Charm City Fringe. We’ve also got something that talks about “Mumbo Jumbo Productions.” Nicole and I have used “Mumbo Jumbo” once or twice in the past when we’ve presented shows by Alonzo.
Here’s the “hook” for “B-Side Man” —
“One African American Man speaks on his journeys, transformations, segues, stories, love, loss, dark days, belly roll laughter and that goddamn playwriting bug. Storytelling that could bewitch Quasimodo! Storytelling that could cure erectile dysfunction then bring it back. Laugh-a-minute? No!!! Think-a-minute? Yes!!! Hear B-Side Man tell the tale.”
We think both of these capture the fantastical essence of the play. It’s one thing to be memorizing and performing the work, when you have artwork that highlights what you’re involved with, it feels like you’re “armed” with a power bow and a full bag of arrows.
More to come!
