WJMAC presents Jared Hall Quartet featuring Tal Cohen


Tal Cohen (piano), Jared Hall (trumpet), Michael Glynn (bass), John Bishop (drums). Jared Hall returns to WJMAC with Tal Cohen. Cohen's unique piano style owes its roots to the Jewish folk songs and classical music he played in his formative years growing up in Gedera, Israel. He was the 2015 winner of the Freedman Fellowship Award and in 2014 won the Barry Harris Piano Competition in the US. His recent album 'Gentle Giants' has received overwhelming attention including a 4 star review from the acclaimed Downbeat Jazz Magazine. “... A special talent that needs to be heard. Check him out!” (-George Garzone). Tickets at the door 6PM. Doors 6:30. First come, first seated. Program subject to change.

The Lover & The Dumb Waiter, by Harold Pinter

Comedy/Drama, Drama, Mystery/Thriller

Thu/Fri/Sat, March 14–17, 21–23 & 28–30. in Sylvia Center’s Lucas Hicks Theater. Presented in conjunction with Stone Town Theatre Works. Thrillingly sexy with an air of mystery, The Lover will keep you on the edge of your seat as the worlds of fantasy and reality collide. With The Dumb Waiter's great humor, absurdity and wit, the “comedy of menace” twists to an unexpected conclusion. A rare and welcome treat for the theater-lover. Two of the early one-acts by Harold Pinter (The Birthday Party), one of the most influential British playwrights of the twentieth century, that helped to broaden the course of theatrical expression. These two taut comedic dramas still pack the same punch as when first written, and provide a perfect close to the DYO Festival, a five-weekend celebration of two-actor plays at Sylvia Center.
