Dear Friends of Kuntu Repertory Theatre:
Kuntu Repertory Theatre is dedicating its 34th season to the works of the late Rob Penny, one of the most influential playwrights, poets, novelists, short story writers, and literary critics in the Pittsburgh community. Rob Penny’s classic plays capture life in Pittsburgh’s Hill District unlike any other writer.
Join us for our next play, “Clean Drums”, on January 22-Feb. 7. This “auto-biographical jazz bop play” tells the story of Joe Harris and the conflict between his traditional jazz style and the new free form style of the younger musicians.
After the show, Kuntu personally invites you to the “Clean Drums” Jam Session on Sunday, January 25th open to all jazz musicians, soul, spoken word and funk performers and artists. The evening promises to be full of talent and surprises as artists, actors, and music lovers come together to meet, to network, to exchange ideas, to learn from each other, and to play some great music. The atmosphere is supportive, creative and diverse. Kuntu Repertory Theatre opens its stage to you, so come along and vibe with us!
Groups of 10 or more receive 25% off the single ticket price. Call the Kuntu office at 412-624-7298 to order your organizations tickets so you can enjoy this exciting season. Tickets and season passes are also available online at www.ProArtsTickets.org.
Bring your instruments, friends and passion with you and let’s celebrate the music that inspired Pittsburgh resident jazz drummer, Joe Harris and the 20th Century innovations of jazz bebop that lives on today.
See you at the show!
