Twisted Melodies 

June 19–July 21, 2019

@  Atlas Performing Arts Center, Lang Theatre

Written and Performed by Kelvin Roston, Jr. 

Directed by  Derrick Sanders ​

A co-production with Baltimore Center Stage,

Congo Square Theatre Company, and the Apollo Theater 

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. ​

“Roston is totally convincing as Hathaway” —Chicago Tribune
