Black Light - 2018 Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info, Photos, Videos

Black Light - Off-Broadway

$61 - $112

After a sold-out run at Joe's Pub, Daniel Alexander Jones returns to the stage as Jomama Jones, his critically-acclaimed alter-ego, in BLACK LIGHT. BLACK LIGHT is a revival for turbulent times and asks us, "Beyond what we can see, what can we be?" Jomama and her musical collaborators lead audiences on an intimate journey - through the darkness of personal and political upheaval, and the shards of shattered illusions - illuminated by spontaneous humor and what The New Yorker calls her "very particular radiance."

BLACK LIGHT draws musical influence from Prince, Sade, Diana Ross, and Tina Turner, and is marked significantly by the Black American Freedom movement, Afromysticism, goddess mythology and divination. Commissioned as part of Joe's Pub's New York Voices program, this immersive performance piece removes the barrier between artist and audience through inquiry, story and song.

Seldom does a reviewer get to see 'behind the curtain,' the director's enthusiastic vision of the set carefully sketched in a notepad long before it becomes an actual intricate tiered wooden platform or the director painstakingly folding pieces of paper together that would eventually be black lit painted, lighted and turned into the faces of the animals that would be called the jungle home. On Friday, the painted paper puppets that I saw months ago from director Drew Eberhard came to reality on top of the heads of the actors. Besides Jekyll and Hyde, the set of The Jungle Book Musical at Carrollwood Player is one of my favorites to date.
