VIVIAN'S MUSIC, 1969 (Mystic)Buy Tickets

A Christmas Carol;mutton chopped, Scrooge-like man

Vivian's Music, 1969 is inspired by real events that occurred in 1969. In a segregated city in the American Midwest bursting with racial tension, a 14-year-old black girl, Vivian, was shot by a white cop, igniting one of the worst race riots in American history. No one knew anything about her: just her name, her age, and how she died. This fantasia for two actors gives Vivian a life, a family, a love of music, and a reason to live. The jazz legend who's back in the neighborhood might be her real father. Can they find each other before the city explodes?
