Lolita Foster of Orange Is The New Black (OITNB) and Broadway veteran Count Stovall lead a multi-ethnic production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Obie winner and Tony Nominee, Johanna Day, directs.

NEW YORK CITY - Casting is now complete for Quick Silver Theater Company (QST) and Classics in Color’s (CIC) co-production of PROOF. Broadway veteran Count Stovall will play Robert. Lolita Foster (OITNB) will play Catherine. Nafeesa Monroe, co-producer of PROOF, will play Claire. Alejandro Rodriguez, QST core company member, will play Hal. Johanna Day – OBIE winner and Tony nominated for role in Broadway's PROOF - will make her directorial debut with this production.

QST intends to reveal a new perspective of this Pulitzer Prize winning play. Without altering the text in any way and casting PROOF with actors of color, a conversation is generated that speaks to the issues of gender and racial privilege in global mathematics programs.

Catherine, a young woman relegated to caring for her father who suffers from mental illness, doubts her own sanity when faced with questions surrounding a mathematical proof discovered in her possession. Has she inherited her father’s mathematical genius as well as his mental instability? All is brought to light in this sexy and intriguing mathematical journey.

The all-female creative team includes costume designer Karen Perry, lighting designer Jennifer Reiser set designer Perrine Villemur and sound designer Iman Hinton.

Founded by Nefessa Monroe, Classics in Color is a theatre company committed to representing all colors on stage, especially in the classics. Through its work the company hopes to demystify the classics and create accessible theatre to which we all can relate. CIC wants all people to be able to see themselves on stage; to feel included.

The mission of Quick Silver Theater Company is to produce theater that invigorates, educates and generates conversations. QST will cast its productions with actors that reflect the community at large. In doing so, the playwright’s work will, in turn, connect with a much larger and more diverse audience. Quick Silver Theater Company was founded by Tyrone Mitchell Henderson and Lizan Mitchell. It is an ensemble company of thirteen theater artists based in the NYC Metro area.

Blues Single | Bushwick Blooze Band: Waiting (Independent / 20 October 2020)

Blues Single Bushwick Blooze Band: Waiting (Independent / 20 October 2020) Stream It From Your Fave Service Waiting is the latest in a string of singles released by Bushwick Blooze Band. The Brooklyn-based blues trio have been performing and recording the blues around the NYC area since 2018. Their first album "Cryin' for the L Train" was released in January 2019, and included covers of famous songs composed by their greatest influencers such as Little Richard, The Allman Brothers Band, Freddie King, and Eddie Vinson.  Bushwick Blooze Band is finishing up the production of their second album "Yes Dear" and unlike the previous cover record, this new album will be their first original contribution to the genres they love. Waiting is an upbeat blues track with a party kind of veneer over solid musicianship. What begins with a classic blues feel transforms into an extended psychadelic flavoured trip. Inventive guitar licks almost make you forget about the virtuosity

Experimental Solo Guitar | Dan Pitt: Monochrome (Independent / September 4 2020)

Experimental Solo Guitar Dan Pitt: Monochrome (Independent / September 4 2020) Buy it on Bandcamp Toronto guitarist and composer Dan Pitt explores new ground in Monochrome, a recent release. The compositions for solo guitar each take a different approach. Pitt's musical imagination is inventive. Ghosts is contemplative, criss-crossing the line between jazz and classical music, and in and out of tonality. It has an interestingly eerie effect. The piece contrasts with Attraction and its buzzy, erratic energy that bursts into spurts of lightening quick notes. He returns to a more conventional contemporary jazz idiom in The Sorrow - but one that ends with an intriguing twist on the form. Long Lake is a classic acoustic guitar track, folky and melodic. Ditto is a standout, a distinctly contemporary exploration of contrapuntal melodies that at times sounds like a murmur of voices. Which Way Is Up is another highlight of the release with its elegant approach to minimalism. Electronic effe

The breakthrough is outlined in an auditory compendium titled New Deli (distributed by the state-run EverGreene Music, set for release February 7, 2012 ), a recording that allows the world to experience a type of soulful networking mor
