"Jitterbug!" marks the spot on your road to discovery. Based on an original screenplay, the play had its first reading in NYC at the legendary National Black Theatre thanks to noted director Petronia Paley. She also directed its most recent NYC reading at the New Works Festival sponsored by Emerging Artists Theatre. Movie star Khalil Kain starred in the leading role and it had dance numbers by Emmy nominated choreographer Jeffrey Page. Additional information on it can be found here.
