Avenue X

a Philadelphia premiere, book and lyrics by John Jiler, music by Ray Leslee directed by Blanka Zizka

February 19 – March 16, 1997

An exhilarating new a cappella musical celebrating the vibrant rhythms of doo-wop, rock-n-roll, gospel, blues and jazz. Set against the volatile backdrop of a racially-mixed Brooklyn neighborhood in 1963, AVENUE X is a joyous testament to the power of the human voice.
