The cast includes Rosebud Baker (Sundance Channel's "Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys", Wunderlust, Lab's Into the Sunset), Janice Hall  (NYCO La Traviata (as Violetta) - PBS "Live from Lincoln Center," Tony Kushner's Angels in America (opera) with the BBC Symphony in London, Grand Illusions: The Music of Marlene Dietrich, 2011 Bistro Award), Royce Johnson (The Mother F....er with the Hat, Hartford TheaterWorks), Scott Robertson (Broadway's The Boys from Syracuse, Cabaret, Damn Yankees, Annie 2) and Danielle Thompson (Warriors Don't Cry by Eisa Davis).

Inspired by true events that led to a race riot in the author's birthplace of Omaha, Nebraska, My Occasion of Sin is set in a segregated city in 1969. Two men from very different backgrounds: Luigi, an African American jazz drummer and George, a white music store owner who specializes in the accordion, are thrown together by fate, finding common ground in their love of music. At the same time, Mary Margaret and Vivian, two young girls from opposite sides of the segregated city, each drink in the new jazz scene for reasons of their own. Music seems to unite and uplift everyone around ... at first. Soon "occasions of sin" - where fear, mistrust and racism fester - are inescapable. Violence erupts, changing everyone's lives forever.
