Black Light - 2018 - Off-Broadway

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.

Every so often we in the Theatre-going community find a show or two that “makes its rounds” so to speak within the area. Godspell happens to be one of those shows. Having been done numerous times, a show that could be considered timeless, can also pose the question, “how are they going to make it stand out from all the others?” The folks at Eight O’Clock Theatre have managed to answer this question ten-fold with their most recent take on the Behemoth Musical by one Stephen Schwartz. Set in a reminiscent-like “tent city” in modern time we meet John the Baptist, Jesus,and his “Players” or folks yearning to hear the teachings of the Son of God. Through 17 musical numbers accompanied by a live band, nine uniquely different performers dressed in modern fare take the stage in an almost traveling-minstrel troupe set out to tell the story. One distinct difference is this “tent city” is in the heart of Tampa, complete with a skyline showing the Towers of University of Tampa and the Sign that hangs above the Tampa Theatre. An open concept stage with an almost concert like feel, we are transported not only into the world of the players, but also a world maybe not so different from that which we could experience if only in particular sides of the city. With graffiti emblazoned on the walls and a mural of Jesus memorialized in black light the lights dimmed and the story began.
