Item Information

Title:
Al Jarreau performs "You Don't See Me"
Description:
In this clip, as part of the Say Brother theater piece entitled "Theatre in Reverse", Al Jarreau performs You Don't See Me, live in the studio. This program as a whole, focuses on three different African American theater productions. Host Barbara Barrow introduces the topic of Black theater and stage works Raisin (the Tony-Award-winning musical for 1974), The Black Dyad (about Black male and female relationships) and "Theatre in Reverse," a Say Brother theater piece with an in-studio vocal performance by Al Jarreau with dance performances (with the intent of drawing the audience's attention to sound and light, rather than to the performers). Program contains excerpts from each production, and an in-studio discussion with writers/directors Evelyn and Melvin Moore about the excerpt "The Date" from The Black Dyad, which was the only segment of the three aired on the program. Produced by Marita Muhammad Rivero. Directed by Conrad White.
