Forget Me Not - A Play About Alzheimer's Disease

Feb 11, 2017

This week on The Local Take I speak with Garrett Davis about his play Forget Me Not. 

Garrett shares with us that his grandmother, Goodness Davis is the inspiration for the play. He shares the heartbreaking moment when he returned home from college and his grandmother didn't know who he was. As the oldest of over 20 grandchildren he was devastated.  As a playwright, he decided to use his craft to not only share the story, but to also bring in medical experts to provide information for the audience.

When the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns to the fabulous Fox stage for their Atlanta engagement this week, fans will get a chance to experience the completed work of MacArthur "genius" Kyle Abraham.  

His dramatic trilogy is titled, UNTITLED AMERICA and it shines a light on the impact that prison systems have on African-American families. The piece was developed over three seasons and features riveting interviews by those impacted by incarceration. 

Sunday, February 12 on Jazz Tones on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I will interview Brandi Disterheft, a contrabassist and vocalist who sings in French and English.  Disterheft was lauded by the late Oscar Peterson, who said "she is what we call serious." A Canadian who has captivated audiences globally and has played Carnegie Hall, Brandi began performing in her teens with her mother, a pianist and Hammond B-3  organist from Chicago.
