Richard LaGravenese

Nightclub singer Joey Evans has seen quite a few revisions to his character his first epistolary short stories for The New Yorker in the late 1930s. But in this brand-new adaptation, the character of Joey undergoes a complete transformation: he’s an artist. Joey is a Black jazz singer refusing to compromise on his craft and struggling to make it big his way, with his sound, despite Depression-Era racism on the Chicago nightclub circuit.
