Jeff Bradshaw is known as a soul-jazz and hip/hop funk innovator. As a boy in Philadelphia, Bradshaw performed with brass bands on Broad Street, just a stone’s throw from the spot where Philadelphia’s most prestigious arts center, The Kimmel Center, stands today.  The respect accorded Jeff by his peers is shown by the impressive list of artists he’s worked with: Marsha Ambrosius, Will Downing, Black Thought of The Roots, Kim Burrell, Take 6, Najee, Eric Roberson, Bilal, Trombone Shorty & more.
Avant is a name that has been used in the context of being original or innovative but the singer/songwriter from Cleveland has transformed the word into a powerhouse brand. Since breaking out on the music scene with his first platinum hit singles, “Separated,” and “My First Love” he has been on a non-stop journey having released seven albums in the last 15 years.
 Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh, the singer, emcee and songwriter has been making waves in the Indie music scene since receiving a GRAMMY nomination for her vocal contribution to The Roots hit “Don’t Feel Right.” She has shared stages with music giants such as Sting, Common, Was, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Queen Latifah, Bobby McFerrin, Jill Scott, Aloe Blacc, Lalah Hathaway and more.

Review: ‘Happy Ending’ at Anacostia Playhouse

Urban Marketing Group Staff

Published

on

Happy Ending is a one-act satirical comedy written in the 1960s by Douglas Turner Ward, co-founder of the Negro Ensemble Company. He had written an op-ed for the New York Times called “American Theatre: for Whites Only?” that prompted funding and other support for the new company. The NEC’s mission was to create theater by black playwrights from the black point of view primarily (not exclusively) for black audiences. It’s easy to forget what a radical notion about representation that was back then. For that memorial reason alone, the revival of Happy Ending just opened at Anacostia Playhouse is well worthy of attention.

But do not come expecting a museum piece—because this Happy Ending is fresh, funny, and bursting with song-and-dance pizzazz. Yes, song and dance! Director Ella Davis has juiced up this modern classic with a riot of musical numbers. Some of the tunes that embellish the zany storyline are familiar (“What a difference a day makes”); more are brand-new. As composed by Marion Johnson and performed by a spirited cast with big voices, they get the joint jumping. And by the time of the show’s happy ending (no spoiler: the title gives it away), Ward’s comic gem has jumped out of history into the hysterical present.
