The first Broadway play written by an African-American woman, A Raisin in the Sun is a masterpiece that The New York Times credits with changing American theater forever.

Roseanna Elizabeth Vitro is a jazz singer and teacher from Arkansas. In 2012 she received a Grammy nomination for Best Vocal Jazz Album for The Music of Randy Newman. Roseanna Vitro is the product of two distinct cultural strains: Her father, who ran the Flamingo nightclub, divided his music affinities between the pluck of Frank Sinatra and the homeland finery of Italian opera. Her mother sang country and gospel songs by way of the church. In recent years Vitro has distinguished herself as an educator, clinician and columnist. Her work with young singers has helped launch jazz’s next generation, while her writings and interviews in Jazz Times -- bannered as Voices In Jazz -- illuminate the magic (and hard work) behind the greatest vocalists of our times. Additionally, her website-blog JVoice reaches a global audience of vocalists and those who support the art of singing. Roseanna Vitro will salute Sarah, Carmen, Ella & Joe with the David Janeway Trio featuring Cameron Brown & Tony Jefferson at Jazz Forum.

Emilie Surtees brings her powerful pipes back to the legendary Cafe Wha? once again for a night of cabaret in which she'll channel the music and talents of Donna Summer, Tina Turner and Chaka Kahn. As a vocalist, Surtees appreciates finding and bringing out the underlying meaning and subtleties of a song. She considers herself a listener first and an interpreter of music second. Her phrasing often mirrors the passion and conviction that the song evokes within her. Her influences range from '60s & '70s soul/R&B and pop singers like Maxwell, Adele and Pharrell Williams. You'll find this tribute artist every bit as talented as the singers she honors in this show that gives a solid nod to three of the most influential female voices of the '80s.
For a singer with such powerful pipes, it's something of a shock to hear vocalist Emilie Surtees describe herself as primarily a "listener." Then again, maybe it's her extraordinary capacity to listen that gives her tribute to Sade, Lauryn Hill and Jill Scott its amazing accuracy. Surtees not only replicates hit songs, power note for power note, but communicates the soul of each singer who originally recorded them -- something that requires not only incredible vocals but also a profound appreciation of music. Be moved and amazed by a tribute artist every bit as talented as the singers she honors in this concert at Cafe Wha?
See vocalist Julie Eigenberg and guitar hero Manny Moreira join forces to pay tribute to Brazilian jazz legend Antonio Carlos "Tom" Jobim, the Grammy-winning king of bossa nova and composer of enduring hits, including the international smash "The Girl From Ipanema." Eigenberg, an accomplished jazz singer and composer, is equally entrancing whether performing American or Latin-flavored classics. Moriera, a Juilliard-trained composer, arranger and singer, was part of the musical ensemble for the Grammy and Tony-winning musical In the Heights, among many other Broadway and off-Broadway shows. Enjoy this exciting evening of music at Club Bonafide in New York City.

It's a magical blend of coordination, showmanship, humor and interactive storytelling. It's a comedy show that brings people together in a respectfully dirty, unpredictably ridiculous and oddly touching celebration of sexual freedom and expression.

Beyond that, it's a show you'll have to experience yourself to believe. From city to city, "airsexuals" of all ages, races, body types, and gender identifications are welcome to sign up and become part of the bizarre spectacle. Throughout every show, a panel of judges provides hilarious feedback after each performance, ensuring that even the worst Air Sex routine makes for a solidly entertaining time.

When her lover, an idealistic artist, gets tangled up in political troubles and is pursued by the corrupt chief of police, Floria Tosca prepares to do whatever it takes to save her beloved.
