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.

What a nice surprise this event turned out to be. My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the show and were very impressed at how talented both entertainers were. Also there was no hassle in picking up our tickets which made for an easy entrance.

- "A must see show...nothing but fabulous." --The Daily Gazette
Jamie Adkins has a great idea for a show - he just doesn't quite know what it is. Every crumpled-up sheet of paper he tosses away only makes this rubber-faced clown more determined to get his creation down on paper. Then one of those balls of paper bounces right back at him! This turn of events finally coaxes the Chaplinesque playwright away from his typewriter and what ensues is a non-stop barrage of hilarious escapades and amazing feats of silliness. Egged on by the melodies of a roving musician-comedian, Anne-Marie Levasseur, Jamie holds on for dear life at the top of a splitting ladder, wrestles with his own bulbous red nose, and flips and somersaults across a slack wire. A former member of Montreal's highly-regarded Cirque Eloize and the Pickle Family Circus, Jamie brings impeccable timing and boundless wit to a show in which fun is spelled "T-y-p-o."
Recommended for all ages.
