“The whole point was to open up a conversation about mental illness.”
The St. Louis Black Repertory Company presents Twisted Melodies, a one-man show by Kelvin Roston, Jr., about the life of Donny Hathaway. The show begins this Wednesday evening, April 20, at Edison Theatre. Places for People Executive Director Joe Yancey will participate in a Q&A after Wednesday’s performance. On Saturday, a special mental health month kickoff performance will be held at 3 p.m., and will be followed by a panel discussion about mental health moderated by Art Holliday of KSDK, and a reception.
