The Green Room 42 Adds Second JACK Alive Benefit Concert Hosted by Dave Malloy

At The Green Room 42, JACK's April 9 benefit concert sold out within the first three days of it being announced, so The Green Room 42 has added a second "JACK Alive" benefit concert for the OBIE Award-winning, Brooklyn-based performance venue, at 9:30 pm. Emcee'd by Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 composer Dave Malloy, "JACK Alive" is a vibrant evening of life-affirming music, featuring an adventurous group of performers from the Broadway, Downtown, and Brooklyn theater scenes, all celebrating JACK's mission to fuel experiments in art and activism.

Performers include Great Comet's Brittain Ashford, Nicholas Belton, Nick Choksi, Amber Gray, Grace McLean, and John Murchison; Hadestown composer Anaïs Mitchell; dynamic performers Starr Busby (9:30pm ONLY), Helga Davis, Eisa Davis (7pm ONLY), Justin Hicks, Kim Mayo, James Harrison Monaco & Jerome Ellis, Shasta Geaux Pop and Dawn L. Troupe; and host Dave Malloy premiering songs from his forthcoming musical adaptation of Moby-Dick (performer roster subject to change).

TICKETS: $100 premium seating, $65 general (available at www.jackny.org)

LOCATION: The Green Room 42 | 570 Tenth Ave @ 42nd St., Manhattan |
4th Floor inside YOTEL

JACK was founded in 2012 with a vision to create an arts organization with racial equity at its core, reflected in its artists, audiences, staff, and governance. Over the past six years, JACK has presented nearly 1,200 performances by emerging and established artists, and has held space for conversations critical to our city, including a year-long series, Reparations365, featuring performance and discussion around the topic of distributive justice for Black Americans. This year, JACK is facing uncertainty around how it will move forward once its current lease is up; this benefit concert is the first in a series of events designed to ensure that JACK will thrive in the coming years, expanding its ability to provide a platform for extraordinary artists and to create dialogue around issues of equity and justice.
