For a special birthday showcase tributing Miles Davis, BlackPoet Ventures reprises "Cool Like That: A Tribute To Miles Davis." The theatrical production explores the vibrant and robust life of a musical genius amid the backdrop of the social and political climate of his time. Adapted from the autobiography "Miles" by poet Quincy Troupe, "Cool Like That" blends original poetry/spoken word, music, vocals and dance. A jazz critic describes it as "top level, well constructed, wonderful prose and poetry, transporting portrayal (of Miles)." Endorsed by Miles Davis Properties.
Doors open at 5pm for a birthday cake mixer and Kickstarter pledge drive to send the show to St. Louis for the St. Lou Fringe Festival.
