Filled with both drama and music, Breath and Imagination: The Story of Roland Hayes
shines a long-overdue spotlight on this ground-breaking performer, a lyric tenor who was the first African-American male concert performer to gain fame at home and abroad, well before Paul Robeson and Marian Anderson took the stage. This West Coast premiere stars jazz vocalist and actor Elijah Rock as the son of slaves who escaped poverty on a Georgia plantation to travel the world, playing Carnegie Hall, performing for England's King George V and impressing American and European audiences in the 1910s and '20s with his prodigious talents. Award-winning actor, singer, writer and thought leader Daniel Beaty penned this inspiring bio play.
