ACCENTUATE THE POSITIVE

An evening about the life and art of Johnny Mercer as told by Alberta Hunter. The show is written by Calvin Alexander Ramsey, who has had plays read at Urban Stages. Several of his plays are touring the USA. C. Kelly Wright, a powerful singer and actress, is playing Alberta Hunter. Miss Wright has performed in Off Broadway musicals, plays, televisions, films in the US and Internationally. Miss Kelly is a regular at Urban Stages, starring in Langston in Harlem and just completing six roles in our Retrospective Reading Series at Urban Stages. Joining her will be Terry Burrus, who is known for performing as a leader in various groups around the world including "Golden Opera Voices", "Jazz Commissioners," "Terry Burrus Dance Floor" and many more. He is also a music director, conductor, composer, producer and an artist with a string of solo albums and a new one coming out soon. In addition, Vincent Scott, performer, director, educator and Urban Stages' school coordinator, will complete the evening.
