About this show

Set in 1953 and traveling to 1985, this poignant memory play unfolds through the eyes of Clifford, the only son of Gene, a jazz trumpet player, and Terry, an alcoholic mother. Alternating between their New York City apartment and a smoke-filled music club, Clifford narrates the story of his broken family and the decline of jazz as popular entertainment. Clifford recalls key moments in his life: Gene's music career and his lifelong musician friends, his mother's dissolution, and finally Clifford's own redemption and recovery from the burden of having to parent the adults upon whom he depends.
