Luna Stage will present a benefit performance of Ami Brabson’s newest cabaret A Change is Gonna Come on Saturday, December 14th. Doors open at 6:30 PM for wine and mingling. Brabson’s performance at 7:30 will be followed by live music, dessert, drinks, and coffee.
This special event takes place during Brabson’s December 6-15 engagement on Luna’s MainStage. Benefit tickets are $75 for orchestra seating and $500 for a table for four. Tickets for other dates are $30 ($25 for Luna Season Passholders.)
In A Change Is Gonna Come, actor-singer-writer Brabson invites us on a journey through life’s transitions, big and small. The one-woman show combines storytelling, poetry, and song to reflect on the inevitable changes in our lives and the self discovery that often follows. The loss of a parent, the demolition of a house, and the discovery of political passions all inspire reflection, music, and ultimately, hope.
Brabson’s previous one-woman show, Phenomenal Women, played to critical acclaim at Luna in 2017, before touring to Manhattan’s Metropolitan Room, the Baltimore Theatre Project, and Havre de Grace Opera House.
A South Orange resident, Brabson most recently starred in American Son at Theaterworks Hartford, where she was described as giving a “superior, layered performance” that “outperforms Broadway.” (Journal Enquirer )
A Change Is Gonna Come will be directed by Luna’s Artistic Director Ari Laura Kreith.
Brabson’s band features Corey Wachala on piano, Colleen Clark on drums, and Joe Bussey on bass. A Change Is Gonna Come was created in collaboration with Corinna Sowers Adler .
