FLIGHT Soars at Jubilee Theatre (Headline)

This production, deftly directed by Jubilee Artistic Director Tre Garrett, brims with creative energy.

All the players handle their individual moments in the spotlight and their ensemble work with equal aplomb.

It touches your heart with its celebration of the human spirit.

Lil Jim is still exploring his options, but this show just might bring you down from whatever tree you may find yourself in.

Director Tre Garrett’s cast solidly hits all the right emotional targets, and the design team enfolds them in a magical environment.

Jubilee Theatre’s production of FLIGHT, which opened Friday, makes a strong case for the script.

It’s an uplifting account of the human capacity for love and hope.

Charlayne Woodard’s FLIGHT is the play and Jubilee Theatre is the venue for this journey of sight and sound that warms the soul.

Director Tre Garret and company are able to tap into the timeless transformative power of theatre using elements of music, atmosphere and the spiritual powers of “the old religion” embedded in Woodard’s play.

I am happy to say that FLIGHT maintains that high benchmark with this incredible production.

The whole ensemble does a fantastic job of weaving stories in and out of the present, and near and far pasts.

Flight will either encourage your spirit to soar or reveal that “you are meant to tell stories about those who do.” Give your heart this magical experience. It will touch you.

Garrett ties the ensemble together, places them comfortably in this setting and links them tightly to Woodard’s script so that the 1858 story and tales from ancient times become a unified performance to carry the power of the message.

Some theaters become known for their consistent delivery of fine acting, skillful production, and powerful stories. Jubilee Theatre is one of those.
