This powerful one-man show, based on the life of ’70s soul singer and composer Donny Hathaway, imagines the troubled and brilliant musician’s last day on Earth in an immersive and crushing play about Hathaway’s compelling inner struggle. Torn between the muses that inspire him and the mental illness that torments him, Hathaway evaluates the choices in his life in a gripping performance by Kelvin Roston, Jr.
