Jomama Jones invites you to join her to mark the lengthening nights and to explore the power of witness, of dream and of regeneration in our turbulent time. Night Flowers will feature Jomama’s original songs taken from her albums Flowering, Six Ways Home, Radiate, and Lone Star. Dr. Bobby Halvorson, Jones’ longtime collaborator will join her for this intimate event of music and storytelling. Jomama Jones has been called “a true theatrical original” by Backstage Magazine. Her show Radiate sold out Soho Rep and toured across the USA. Her new show Black Light was part of Under the Radar at Joe’s Pub in the Public Theater and will return to the Public for a six-week run in 2018.
