Due to “scheduling conflicts with the creative team,” the U.S. premiere of “DJEMBE! The Show” will be postponed until at least this fall.
The production was to feature a group of African and international musicians perform with a wide array of instruments, along with the audience, who each hole a djembe drum to play along. It was scheduled to open June 13th at the Apollo Theatre, co-produced by creator Doug Manuel and Michèle Darmon. A cast of local performers had not yet been announced.
Tickets are in the process of being refunded by the Apollo.
