Lia Chang: Harlem Nights with Lorey Hayes, Actress, Director and Award-Winning Playwright of Power Play and Massinissa

On the final Friday in October, I met up with Lorey Hayes, a Broadway, film and television actress, who is also a director and an award-winning playwright, in Harlem at the Manhattan School of Music, for a spectacular concert tribute featuring MSM’s Grammy®-nominated Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra, led by the renowned percussionist Bobby Sanabria, and featuring the National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Award Honoree, the legendary Cuban-born conguero, Candido. The evening was a celebration of The Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce, with The Orchestra kicking off a year-long “Harlem Nights” Concert Series with “Harlem Hothouses” saluting the venues such as the Apollo and the Savoy where Jazz flourished, and we were all dancing in the aisles during the encore.

Lia Chang: Jarlath Conroy Leads Cast of Pinter’s The Homecoming at Centerstage in Baltimore, 1/26-2/20/11. The last weekend of November, I had a double feature of Jarlath Conroy, first at an advance screening of the Oscar nominated “True Grit”, directed by The Coen Brothers, in which he plays the grim undertaker opposite Hailee Steinfeld’s Mattie Ross, and then onstage in the Off-Broadway run of Nick Jones’s The Coward, at The Duke. After seeing Conroy in The Coward, we popped into Un Deux Trois for a quick bite and to chat about his experience of working with The Coen Brothers on “True Grit”.Check back for my interview with him.
