Audience comments:
“The Gift of Jazz is ……A WORLD CLASS production…..Thrilling, moving, and memorable… a spectacular show! The vibe in the room was electric. The band was superb, the singers outstanding, the room was hopping. People were singing, laughing, crying, swaying back and forth totally in love with the production. A full house!!…. Brilliant, Deborah and her team were fantastic…WHAT A GIFT.. Through the music, narration, history and costuming – what an innovative way to introduce the audience to Black history and its importance and relevance to Canada’s history. Always nice when a show absolutely exceeds your expectations. This was an evening to remember!”
