The cost of admission ranges from $20- $30.

Sitawi Jahi who just returned back to Maryland from his first visit back to New Orleans since evacuating in 2005 because of Katrina, was disheartened by the lack of progress in bringing former residents and families back home. He stated that he was saddened by seeing so many People on the streets just talking to themselves. “It’s Bad”, He said, “People are in dire need of help”. “The evidence of the devastation from Katrina is still there , it is unbelievable”. These will be the last shows in NY in 2006 before touring to Baltimore, MD. Wabi Sabi Productions and Maryland’s Movements Unlimited Performing Arts Company have formed a partnership to bring the multimedia musical to the Baltimore/Washington area on January 19th To January 21th, 2007 at the Rognel Heights Cultural Center, 1200 Wicklow Road, Baltimore, Maryland 21229-1548.
