FREDERICK DOUGLASS ONE NIGHT IN NEW YORK WILL ALSO BE AN UNFORGETTABLE NIGHT AT THE TRIAD.
In Tami Tyree's musical, 'Frederick Douglass One Night in New York,' the hero arrives in NYC in 2018; the place where he became a free man in 1838. He will take a seat at the table of a modern day female scholar who has summoned him for a heart-to heart... With a sizzling score of jazz, blues, and gospel, this imagined tet-a-tet is overthrown by the realities of his first marriage when wife Anna bursts upon the scene. Bookended by two women, Frederick Douglass, the great romantic, has to navigate "freedom" as never before.
Book, lyrics by Tami Tyree with Ms. Tyree singing the role of Anna Murray Douglass; featuring a jazz quartet and performers from the 2019 cast; 2019 original score and musical direction Rudi Mwongozi.
