This grant will launch the music/dance production of the Abbey Lincoln Project (working title), a new show that will investigate and celebrate the music of legendary Jazz Vocalist Abbey Lincoln and her partner, jazz percussionist Max Roach, while also examining her life and the volatile time she lived in. Performances will take place at the August Wilson.
