Live and On Stage! Suffolk Theater Schedule for Autumn

Eddie Allen’s Push 

Seasoned trumpeter, composer and educator Eddie Allen’s highly awaited Push is a mix of mainstream jazz with generous sprinklings of urban flavors and reggae thrown into the mix. Allen and the excellent group of musicians he assembled for this release are simply riveting, with pure jazz and catchy flowing rhythms from start to finish. Allen states that the goal of this project was simply to create some good, “fun to listen to music.”

The concert is FREE, no tickets required.

Jekyll and Hyde 

PUSH Physical Theatre retells the iconic tale of Dr. Jekyll, who tears away the darkest parts of his being, creating another creature, the broken and mangled Edward Hyde. Gutted of guilt and conscience, Hyde is free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. Join us for this example of the gothic genre through physical theatre. *Mature Content
