Mixed Magic Theatre Extends 'SIMPLY PHENOMENAL' Maya Angelou Tribute By Four Shows, 7/23-24 & 7/30-31

Due to popular demand Mixed Magic Theatre will present four encore performances of SIMPLY PHENOMENAL: A TRIBUTE TO DR. MAYA ANGELOU. This extension will replace previously scheduled performances of the civil rights drama, Fate Comes Knocking at Mixed Magic Theatre.

(Fate Comes Knocking will still be performed at Katherine Cornell Theatre on Martha's Vineyard, August 13-15 as scheduled.)

Simply Phenomenal, conceived and directed by Ricardo Pitts-Wiley, blends some of Maya Angelou's best loved poetry with music and multimedia elements to weave together a 60-minute show of humor and pathos that celebrates and honors an American icon.

The show features three original songs written and performed by singer/guitarist Kim Trusty, as well compositions by Ricardo Pitts-Wiley, in addition to several traditional gospel songs.

The performing company also features Bernadet Pitts-Wiley, Jeannie Carson, MJ Daly, Amos Hamrick and Ricardo Pitts-Wiley.

The show as before, will also feature two special guest readers each night and a tribute to the late actress and civil rights activist Ruby Dee.

Tickets bought in advance online, by credit card over the phone, or picked up at the Box Office 24hrs in advance before show- $15. Tickets purchased at the Box Office the day of the show-$20.
