JOE'S PUB LIVE! Modifies This Week's Schedule in Solidarity With The Black Community

In light of recent events and to stand in solidarity with the Black community, Joe's Pub, a program of The Public Theater, announced modifications to their programming for JOE'S PUB LIVE!, its free series of live-streamed and archived performances from their iconic stage in New York City. Designed to facilitate social connection during this time of physical distancing, Joe's Pub will share events with audiences worldwide each Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8PM Eastern.

This week's new schedule of performances celebrates both the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) and LGBTQIA+ communities with a one-night-only retrospective concert and celebration of a pop icon with Kevin Smith Kirkwood's Classic Whitney: Alive! on Friday, June 5 at 8PM; and Jomama Jones' Black Light, a critically acclaimed musical revival for turbulent times, on Saturday, June 6 at 8PM. There will not be a stream on Thursday, June 4.

In Classic Whitney: Alive!, the legendary Whitney Houston has come back to earth, reincarnated in the body of Kevin Smith Kirkwood, to deliver a one-night-only retrospective concert and celebration of some of her iconic live performances. Here, Whitney is backed by a full band and back-up singers (who also play guests including her mother Sissy Houston, brother Gary, and even Bobby Brown) and musical director Drew Wutke. With a script constructed from bits of her live concert banter, and re-enactments of her live concert musical arrangements, it's the ultimate Whitney tribute from the ultimate Whitney fan!

Recorded live at Joe's Pub on November 9, 2015.
