A Comedy by Jonathan Tolins

"Irresistible, delicious and wickedly funny! I tell you to go.”-New York Times

AREA PREMIERE – Alex More (Jake Purcell) is one of “the luckiest people in the world!” He’s scored the oddest of odd jobs as the lone employee of the shopping mall in the basement of Barbra Streisand’s Malibu home. Inspired by Streisand’s coffee table book, My Passion for Design, will this out-of-work actor develop a real friendship with Babs or will he be forever trapped underground? Loved by audiences and critics across the country, this irresistible comedy can finally be seen in Rochester.

Proceeds to benefit JCC Camp Seneca Lake. Monday, March 12 at 7:30pm Reserved Seats: $40 (Students $25)VIP Seats: $65* *VIP tickets are located in the front rows of the theater and include a meet & greet reception after the concert. Melvin Seals has been a powerful presence in the music industry for over 30 years with a long-established reputation as a performer, recording artist and producer. Melvin is most revered for his powerful, high-spirited, Hammond B-3 organ, and keyboards in the Jerry Garcia Band. Melvin spun his B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what has now become “Jam Band Music”. From blues to funk to rock to jazz, Melvin Seals serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up. Melvin and JGB brings an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and remarkable chops to the table. With acoustic and electric ingredients and unique combinations of Zach Nugent’s guitar and vocals, Pete Lavezzoli’s hearty drums and, of course, a heapin’ helpin’ of the wizard’s magic on Hammond B-3 Organ and keyboards. Along with backing vocals, the result is a most satisfying blend of natural organic grooves that challenges genre boundaries. Their chemistry is the focus from which they create a spontaneous and high art where the sky's the limit musically. They offer an exciting, often psychedelic musical journey that changes nightly and keeps the audience dancing and smiling (and some staring in amazement) for hours. In addition to the often played staples, the band has recently been exploring the back catalog and performing a ton of super rare tunes, some of which The Jerry Garcia Band played only a few times over all those years.
Adding his rock-gospel-soul-rhythm and blues touch with his funky style of playing, no wonder Jerry nicknamed him “Master of the Universe”. Melvin continues to treat music lovers to his unique brand of melodic flavor with JGB. Come see and hear for yourself!
