Why See Black Light?

Our Afromystic diva returns!

The great Jomama Jones makes another return to the stage following her turn in Philadelphia in May 2017, this time as part of the Public Theater's 2017/18 season. A musical revue that isn't afraid to confront personal and political upheaval, Daniel Alexander Jones takes the mic again as his fierce alter-ego Jomama Jones with a stunning set of numbers spanning pop, soul, rock and disco. And when Jomama stops singing, be prepared for some sassy anecdotes, comedy and the raising of serious points. A revue for these turbulent times, prepare for an engaging evening of music, song and story.

Hope and love rule!

The original run featured star pianist Samora Pinderhughes with vocalists Helga Davis and Trevor Bachman, in a seamless medley of both song and monologue. Showing that the world can often be darkest before the dawn, this larger than life diva examines our hopes and fears, with a call to action that includes love and inclusiveness. With stories spanning her childhood in the American South, her love of Prince to her prodigious math skills, to the elderly aunt with her own heroic tale to behold, this is a heartwarming concert/musical that will lead you into lightness of being.
