The Burnin' in Broadway THE BURNIN'
Progress Theatre
9/9-9/18/2016
THE BURNIN' is an a'capella musical--or NeoSpiritual--fusing styles from The Blues and Jazz to Spoken Word and Hip Hop, inspired by the 1940 Rhythm Club Fire of Natchez, MS and the 2003 E2 Club Stampede of Chicago, IL. Following a group of clubgoers before, during and after two reimagined U.S. club tragedies, THE BURNIN' explores personal and communal definitions of freedom, survival and identity during times of change. SYNOPSIS: It’s 1940 in the fictional City of Antebellum. As the African American community prepares for the return of hometown hero Band Man to the local juke, the White community organizes it’s Annual Pilgrimage Pageant; a celebration of Southern hierarchy as it was “Before the War.” Fast forward 85 years and post-Great Migration urban residents of Sittay gather to critique the policies and politics behind contemporary headlines at a local hip hop spot. When disaster strikes in both spaces, the clubgoers are forced to examine intersections of race, gender, trauma, agency, history, legacy and uncertain futures in the blink of an eye. Written and Directed by Cristal Chanelle Truscott Music by Heather Christian and Cristal Chanelle Truscott Performed by Progress Theatre, a touring ensemble using theatre to encourage social consciousness, cross-community dialogue, healing and cultural awareness.
