I, TOO, SING AMERICA, conceived, and musically composed by Othello Jefferson, is directed by Jamie Yuen-Shore, with movement direction by Christine Chung. It is an inclusive song of America. Celebrating the diversity of BIPOC American life featuring an ensemble of 20 diverse performers, I, TOO, SING AMERICA brings the poetry of great American authors such as Langston Hughes, Frances Chung, and Vince Gotera to life through original music and contemporary dance.
The consistent narrative of mainstream media, focuses on the oppression and misery of the BIPOC experience. Little is seen of ambition, competition, triumph, tradition, joy, love, hope and reflection. I, TOO, SING AMERICA gives a perspective beyond the normal limited narrative. In a class of its own, the show is for all audiences, who are ready for the soulful symphony of poetry, music, and movement that is I, TOO, SING AMERICA.
"In finding and curating the poems for this piece, we thought carefully about the topics and themes we wanted to feature, with the goal of embracing and championing representation in every part of the process and product," said Jamie Yuen-Shore, Co-Creator/Director. "We wanted to find works that resonated with us, and especially moments or ideas we related to that we don't often see on stage or hear in popular narratives."
Born out of inspiration from Othello Jefferson, I, TOO, SING AMERICA, began as a love letter for his two daughters to show that their lives can be as large as the creation in which they were born. In the 2018 and 2019 season, the play won three Theatre Bay Area Awards including Best Musical, Outstanding Direction, and Outstanding Choreography.
I, TOO, SING AMERICA, puts a song in your heart to inspire you over and over again. Take action now and get your tickets to this show that has a history of sold-out performances. Tickets prices range from $15-$40.
