T/K/O @ Joe’s Pub

TKOOn October 22nd, Joe’s Pub welcomed a cast of 12 and a band of 4 onto its stage to perform a concert reading of The / King / Operetta, freshly refined from its adventure at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.  The all-star cast included Rodney Gardiner, Shelley Thomas, David Manis, Reed Birney, Will Harper, Brian Tyree Henry, JD Webster, Adrienne Warren, Hanna Cheek, and many, many more incredibly talented folk.  The music was brought to an inspired new life, full of unyielding energy and emotional depth, as generously provided by the singers and musicians.  It was a powerful night, and an always-empowering story.
