How August Wilson and Miles Davis Helped Jubilee Theatre’s Tre Garrett Find His Voice

From Liz Johnstone…

“Garrett discovered Wilson in 1997 or 1998, after struggling with a monologue from The Tempest. He wanted Miles Davis to ease his mind. Instead, he found an old LP cast recording of Wilson’s 1982 play, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, in the library of Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. He went into a listening room, turned off the lights, and lay down on the floor.”
