George Benson's sings the song 'ON BROADWAY' and that's exactly where I plan to house and perform some of my productions - well, maybe not on Broadway, but OFF-OFF BROADWAY and hopefully an OFF-BROADWAY piece. Below are just 2 of those upcoming offerings: THE MUSIC OF EDEN & the one-man show STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN.
THE MUSIC OF EDEN
'THE MUSIC OF EDEN' is an avant garde theatrical production that features selections and dramatic events centered around the legendary Garden of Eden. It has been years in the making. BACKERS AUDITION is where potential investors are scouted and courted to financially back this production and that will begin this fall of 2017. Stay tuned.......
STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
"I was not born to live man's life, but to be the stuff of future memory"
-quote/dialogue from the film EXCALIBUR
Actor; JAMES D. WATKINS
STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
Democrat & Chronicle1999 review of the one-man play 'STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN':"He doesn't need to hire any actors or models at all....just him on the stage...this is an acting tour de' force"
Wolfgand Amadeus Mozart's REQUIEM plays as his life leaves his grasps. Thus, the beginning ofSTAIRWAY TO HEAVENstarts.
Performing an one-man or one-person show can be difficult. It's just you. No one to reflect and act off. Just you. Though, as an actor, at least you know the 'other' actors lines and how that 'other' actor is going to act and re-act to your dialogue.STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN is one such show. I created and wrote this intimate piece to see and push my skills and abilities as an actor. It's about the worthinness of mankind to reach the stairs of Heaven. Questions arise such as; if mankind is worthy then how worthy are they? Does God see and know all? Is the structure and design of life itself just a high-tech and spiritual or supernatural game? In STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN I will embody the frailties of man, the omnipotence of God and the evil of Lucifer. This is an one-man show/play. STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN is created, written and performed by myself and it is produced byODYSSEY WORKS, ECLIPSE ENTERPRISES, PHOENIX PRODUCTIONS & PHOENIX PLAYGROUND THEATRE. The music used is from Ludwig Van Beethoven's Symphony #7 and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's REQUIEM. The next performance details will be below:
