The latest addition to our Development Slate.

Yesterday, I announced a project that I’ve been bursting at the “scenes” to talk about.

I’ve always been a fan of Harry Belafonte, but it wasn’t until I had the incredible pleasure of spending a few hours with the legendary entertainer and activist that I knew I had to get his story on a stage.

See, I know how lucky I was to have that audience with Mr. Belafonte and to hear the incredible stories of his interactions with JFK, RFK, MLK, Eleanor Roosevelt, Nelson Mandela, etc., never mind how he took a traditional Jamaican folk song and turned it into one of the most well-known songs in the world. (Sing it with me . . .”Day-O!”)

I also know that not everyone can be as lucky as I was and hear about his journey from the icon himself.

Which is why we’re going to put his story and the music of his incredible, world-changing life on a stage.

I don’t have many details on the show or team just yet, but I will soon (sign up here for future announcements) . . . but I can say this — with his gifts and his guts, Mr. B. changed the world.

And we’re going to work really, really hard to make sure that this show inspires others to do the same.
