Five ‘Til (solo) Debuts at Dixon Place

Five ‘Til (solo), a new version of a piece written and performed by Obie award-winning actor Edwin Lee Gibson opens tonight at Dixon Place. Described as a “blues fairytale” the story is based on Dante Wallace, a career criminal accused of a heinous crime that he claims he did not commit (the rape and murder of an 11-year-old girl), five minutes before his execution in Huntsville Texas State Prison. “Part lucid hallucination; part fairytale with music that captures the pain, joy and flight in the stylistic traditions of negro spirituals, blues, and soul.”
