Upcoming Concerts & Shows
America Assassination is written and directed by Curtis B. Lewis. It gives the inside look into an Urban community, where characters share stories through up-tempo rhythms, music, humor, and poetry. The mysterious, King Joe, has dreamt into the future and he tells the community that there is a UFO (A Big African Space Ship) that is about to come save the people and bring them back into the land of freedom. A Tourist Guide suddenly appears, who then brings outside travelers into the community who are depicted as danger. He reminds one to never forget his pain and that one must always cope with pain, or else he will never reach his true potential. A dynamic play that delve into the lives of citizens in a community where it seems hope is at lost. As one tends to give up, the unique stories remind us that we must fight for ourselves, we must fight for our families, and we must fight for our communities.
