If you’re a Michael Jackson fan and are in Manhattan this coming Friday night, June 25, don’t forget to check out Leaving Neverland, a one night only tribute to the so-called "King of Pop" who died exactly a year ago. The show, which will take place at 8 p.m. at the Faison Firehouse Theatre, is the inspiration of Tony Award-winning director and choreographer George Faison, who worked with Jackson regularly as part of his theatre and music career.
Leaving Neverland is written by Quincy Troupe with Faison as Director. Musical direction is by Brian Whitted and stars Toni Seawright, Deborah Gregory, Daniel Carlton, Russell Ferguson, Kevin Hunte, Angel Morales and Mike Hammond.
The Faison Firehouse Theatre is located at 6 Hancock Place, West 124th Street, between St. Nicholas and Morningside Avenues in Harlem. Admission is $20. Visit http://www.faisonfirehouse.org/.
