With a title that alludes to an inciting moment in the creative life of one of the biggest icons in music history, Miles Davis and the Blue Flame Incident celebrates the life and work of one of the most innovative jazz musicians of all time. An exploration of Davis' career, this unique performance combines video clips, voiceovers that brings to life sections of his autobiography, still images and, most importantly, incredible live music courtesy of the Metta Quintet. As the musicians perform a variety of songs that demonstrates the range and imagination of the trumpeter, bandleader and cultural provocateur that was Miles Davis, an inspirational story of the man himself is woven with the supporting media in this not-to-be-missed show.

Perhaps I didn't read the advertisement correctly but we were under the impression that this was a full production play. A one-person storyteller did not fit the bill. My rating is only for the disappointment; otherwise (to be fair), the David Gonzalez' performance is a four star performance for people who know ahead of time what to expect.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Mr. Gonzalez works his magic…absorbing, funny and suspenseful. The Frog Bride is enchanting.” --New York Times
A hip new family-friendly adaptation of the classic Russian fairy tale, The Frog Bride is beautifully told to the music of Prokofiev and original jazz/rock compositions in a setting of bold video images derived from Kandinsky. David Gonzalez tells this tale of a dreamy (and prideful) young man’s journey into manhood – told with a comic spark that swells to the outrageous.
The Frog Bride made its New York debut this past spring to glowing reviews and wildly enthusiastic audiences. The sold-out show was further recognized with a Drama Desk nomination for “Unique Theatrical Experience,” an honor rarely given to family entertainment. A magical, enchanting hour of storytelling, this is a delightful way to introduce a young child to the joy of theatre – and a charming way for an adult to pass an hour, too.
Recommended for ages 6 and up.
