"Vietgone" | now - Sep 30

Aug 29, 2018

Bubbling with infectious energy, this rap-spitting, pop culture-crusted dramedy is an ode to the real-life courtship of Playwright Qui Nguyen’s parents. Forced to leave their country during the height of the Vietnam War, two refugees find themselves at the same relocation camp in Arkansas – the land of Harleys, hot dogs and “howdy!” Before they find their way into each other’s arms, they’ll have to blaze a trail in their weird new world and leave behind the baggage they didn’t pack.

Great Day in Harlem: Jean Bach's 1994 documentary

Aug 27, 2018

In August of 1958, 57 of the greatest jazz musicians of all-time gathered on the steps of a Harlem brownstone for a photograph.  The Academy Award-nominated 1994 documentary "A Great Day is Harlem" is a film about possibly the most famous photograph in jazz history.  It is also a love note to this art form. The musicians in the photo represented the full spectrum of jazz history from Dixieland to Big Band Swing, from Harlem Stride, to Modern Bebop. Sidemen, innovators, young lions, and old masters were all there.

A jazz benefit concert will be happening on Friday August 17th at 7pm in Lafayette to help survivors of human trafficking. People often think that human trafficking happens in other countries, but in reality, it happens everywhere.

Here in Colorado human trafficking is an unmentioned issue, and Reintegra (a non-profit in Lafayette) works with human trafficking survivors to help them rebuild their lives.
