The Beat Generation:Words and Music

The Beat Generation

"Immediate, stirring, provocative. and thoroughly entertaining..."

The Beat Generation:Words and Music presented by John Evans and The Scott Marshall Quartet takes you back to the 50's with immediacy and passion.
Created by John Evans, with the collaboration of Scott Marshall, The Beat Generation draws excerpts and stories from that infamous Triumvirate: William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac with a dialogue of music and words that will thrill you.
Scott Marshall channels the driving music of a generation that pushed us forward with a frenzy through the 20th century. John Evans provides the passion and presence of their words in a tour-de-force performance.
Add to this on-screen images of the times: post-war materialism, the Bomb, the Cold War, the Civil Rights movement, the drugs, and the ecstatic joy of just being totally alive, and the 99% becomes more meaningful.
The performance is 90 minutes long, including a 15 minute intermission.
