Enjoy Marin Theater Company's West Coast Premier of Nambi Kelley's "Jazz". Based on the book by Toni Morrison; directed by Awaye Timpo.
Synopsis of "Jazz": 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.
