“City of Hope” is the story of how music from African Roots developed into beloved forms of artistic expression around the world, told by the Agents of Jam - FunikiJam’s multicultural band of contemporary artists. Featuring a score that blends Zydeco, Jazz, R&B and Broadway, “City of Hope” takes a musical journey from Africa to New Orleans, Paris and Detroit; and creates an innovative moment in theatre - a fun family musical that opens the doors for discussions of race, diversity, and world culture. Filmed at the Historic Actor’s Temple Theatre off Broadway in February of 2020, the film transports its audience into the world of the off Broadway show in a uniquely interactive way. Recommended for ages 10 and under.
