Kitchen Theatre Company, 417 W. State Street, Ithaca | While returning to clear out his family’s West Philadelphia house to be sold, Jay finds an old record collection of disco, R&B, and classical soul, transporting him through the memories of his youth, coming of age and coming out in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Propelled by the beat of soul, this one-man show is a love letter to the power of family and our ability to persevere. (photo: Facebook)
